Personal Quote:

About Sarkar (2005): "The film is not based on Bal Thackeray, but the similarities are there - Thackeray wields enormous power, has personal charisma and is trusted by lakhs of people.

And apart from the two Bachchans, Amitabh and Abhishek, I've decided to cast new non-star faces from theater." See more »

Trivia:

Was producing a film titled " Nimmi" directed by Taufiq Ahmed. It was about a young girl trapped in a forest. He shelved the film. This was 2004. See more »
