Subhash Ghai – the ultimate showman of Bollywood film industry gave us many masterpieces like Karz, Hero, Pardes and so on in the 80′s and the 90′s. But the moment this talented director step into the 21st century, we have to admit that the filmmaker somehow lost his charm!
After the Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer Taal, all his directorial ventures – Yaadein, Kisna, Black & White and Yuvvraaj – have bombed at the box-office despite having a formidable cast.
Now, Subhash is all set to don the director’s hat again after ages with Kaanchi, and he has high hopes from this project. “That is past now, I have a lot of hopes riding on this new film,” Ghai said. “Art and commerce – both are involved when I think of making a film. If the film is too arty and cannot be made for the general audience, then I have to think twice,” he said when asked about what kind of a film was he directing.
Kaanchi will see newcomers like Kartik Tiwari and Mishti along with Mithun Chakraborty and Rishi Kapoor is a story about an innocent girl from the hills who makes her journey into a world of crime and corruption.
