Ashutosh Gowariker goes back in time to make another historical epic

9 December 2012 3:24 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker is brilliant at illustrating the Indian past on the big screen. You only have to watch masterpieces like Lagaan (2001) and Jodhaa Akbar (2008) to know that Ashutosh is at his best when he amalgamates history and cinema together. Well for his next directorial venture, Ashutosh will be making another historical epic which will go further back in time. He had this to say to the Indian press: “This time (the story) is based in the Indus Valley Civilisation. It will again be a period film, a love story and it will be made on a large scale.” However, Ashutosh has refrained from talking about who will be starring in his next epic film, as he has yet to finalise everything. “It will be another week before I announce it. It will have an ensemble cast and will be a big budget venture.”

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra opts for Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag music

7 February 2012 3:15 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

After Ashutosh Gowariker, another Rahman loyalist in Bollywood has had to reluctantly switch to another composer. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra who worked wonders out of Rahman in Rang De Basanti and Delhi 6 and had resolved never to work with another composer, was compelled to look towards Shankar- Ehsaan-Loy for the music of his new project Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (Bmb).

"And with good reason," informs a source close to the project. "Mehra was adamant on pulling off a hat trick with Rahman. He waited for months for Rahman to accommodate Bmb into his schedule. And Rahman, to his credit, tried his best. It was especially important that Rahman do Bmb because of the composer's impressive record with bio-pics Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, The Legend Of Bhagat Singh, Mangal Pandey, Elizabeth. But his impossible schedules and constant travel into three continents left Rahman with little choice."
