There are rumors swirling that there is going to be a new film, inspired by the Hollywood film Charlie’s Angels, with Sushmita Sen, Lara Dutta and Priyanka Chopra as the Angels. Yielding the megaphone for this exciting project will be Rohit Jugraj and action film masters Abbas Mustan will produce it.
Jugraj, whose last film Superstar has gotten some very good reviews, confirms the film but not the casting, “Yes, I’m directing a film for Abbas-Mustan. And it’s the Charlie’s Angels styled girls’ action flick.” He would not confirm or deny that Lara, Sushmita and Priyanka were going to be part of the cast, “ All I’ll say at this stage is that my producers Abbas-Mustan are very influential and they’ve worked with the who’s who of the industry. For them getting my wish list of actors won’t be a problem,” he added.
Though inspired by the Hollywood take on Charlie’s Angels his version will be different, “Only the idea of three super-sexy girls in action combats isn’t enough for me. I’ll be going much deeper into their psyche, as I’ve done in Superstar. On the surface, Kunal Khemu plays just another double role. But I’ve tried to examine the duality of human personality through the two roles,” Jugraj said.
About Superstar and the lead being compared to SRK’s character in Om Shanti Om Jugraj said, “Sure my film too has its protagonist playing a junior artiste and a hedonistic star. But Shah Rukh in OSO was in an entirely different orbit. One critic has said I have too many close-ups of my hero, Kunal Khemu, in the film. I challenge any other actor of Kunal’s generation to hold his expressions on camera for so long in close-ups.”
