Bollywood Hungama News Network

Stylish filmmaker threw a grand bash announcing the launch of his next film, Acid Factory, over the weekend. The film starring Fardeen Khan, Aftab Shivdasani, Dino Morea, Manoj Bajpai, Danny Denzongpa, Irrfan Khan in lead roles and is directed by Suparn Verma (of Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena fame).

And if you thought that Gupta only specializes in making dark, action packed thrillers you are in for a surprise. Sanjay Gupta is all set to change gears and make a film based on noted author Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's novel 'Vine of Desire'. Bollywood Hungama spoke to the maverick filmmaker to confirm the news, “Yes, I am planning to make a film on 'Vine of Desire'. Pooja Bhatt would be directing the film. It's a very emotional story based on the life of two half-sisters. The film is now in pre-production so we haven't finalized anyone of the cast. The film will go on floors by the end of this year”, said Gupta.

Gupta also has yet another light hearted film Milte Hai, the script of which has been written by the talented Meghna Gulzar. “Milte Hai is a romantic comedy. Even that film is in pre-production. It should start rolling in a couple of months”, signs off the gutsy filmmaker.
