That’s right. Shekhar Kapur, who recently saw the release of his Elizabeth: The Golden Age which has earned Cate Blanchett an Oscar nomination plans to start his next film soon. Most interesting is the fact that the subject of the film will be a “futuristic Mumbai” where Shekhar will convey his interpretation of what India’s largest city will be like many years from now.
Assosciated with UTV, the project will be the most expensive he has made to date. However, the cast hasn’t been decided yet. His other project, The Time Machine, will be directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and it is rumoured that Ranbir Kapoor will be starring in the film although Shekhar refutes these rumours.
Wait and watch, this one should be interesting.
