For his film Maan Gaye Mughal-e-Azam Sanjay Chhel is going to cash in on the jodi of Rahul Bose and Mallika Sherawat. The two of them were brilliant together in Pyaar Ke Side Effects and Chhel thinks that the combination of the two will be perfect for his new comedy film.
About working with the pair he said, “I have been waiting to sign Mallika as her comic timings are superb. She has naughty eyes and her potential hasn’t been used so far. Rahul has class and he his approach towards comedy is different. While Mallika is bindas and can be really funny.”
Chhel says that the film is going to be along the lines of a Woody Allen type comedy that shows off the fine comedic actors, and will include of course his “stupid one liner”. Saying stupid because, “Well that’s what the critics have been writing about my dialogues in movies. I have been hearing it for more than 12 years. They will praise the stars saying superb comic timings and write, but same stupid one liner from Sanjay Chhel. Mere Kaan pak gaye sun sun ke, but its ok now,” Chhel said.
Adding that though the title does have Mughal-e-Azam it has nothing to do with or poke fun at the classic film, “I dare not do that I have the greatest regard for the original film. My film is not a remake of Mughal–e-Azam , it’s a fun filled light comedy film,” he added.
