Manoj Bajpayee and Tabu, who were earlier screen on the big screen with super-hit movies like Ghaath and Dil Pe Mat Le Yaar, will be reuniting on the big screen again in Vikram Malhotra and Neeraj Pandey’s first joint production which rolls in Mauritius soon.
“It’s a psychological thriller,” says Manoj. Will they be seen romancing each other? He says “For that you’ll have to watch the film. It is a story of relationships revolving around Annu Kapoor, Tabu and me.”
The film will be directed by debutant Manoj Abhyankar. Manoj even pointed out that he’s worked with many first time directors, including Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra in his first film Aks which was also a psychological thriller. “Although the director is new, the script is fabulous. I had done Special Chabbis with Neeraj and we share a great rapport. I’m waiting for him to direct me again. Meanwhile, I’m working on Saat Uchakkey which he is producing. I play this good-for-nothing bloke in Chandni Chowk who is desperate for money and to get married. It’s directed by another debutant, Sanjeev Sharma.”
Then there’s Tigmanshu Dhulia’s multi starrer Yaara, of which, Manoj was ready to reveal much about: “The dates, the finance, the cast is yet to be finalised. All I can say is that I’m committed to a project with Tishu who is an old friend from my theatre days.” When asked about Sanjay Gupta’s upcoming crime drama Mumbai Saga where he reportedly plays a character modelled on gangster Arun Gawli Manoj retorts, “As of now I haven’t signed Mumbai Saga. Gupta is a friend but I don’t have excessive expectations from friends.“
