'Awwal' to go on floors next year
Director Vivek Agnihotri, who is keen to work with Ajay Devgn in "Awwal", a satire on land acquisition, says the movie will go on floors next year
"I have a wish list for Awwal. I want to work with Ajay Devgn.
I need an entertainer, a big star as this is a big film. I feel Ajay will be suitable for the film. He can seriously carry a comic role," Agnihotri told PTI. The director's last film "Hate Story", an erotic thriller starring Paoli Dam and Nikhil Dwivedi, was a surprise hit.
It was produced by Vikram Bhatt. The makers are planning a sequel to "Hate Story" but Agnihotri says he is not a part of it. "Vikram Bhatt called me several times for that (sequel). I couldn't start it as I was thinking whether to do it or not.
I feel I have already given my best and there is nothing that I can contribute more," Agnihotri said. "After two-three years if I see at erotica differently then maybe I will make it." For the sequel, producer Vikram Bhatt has reportedly signed popular TV actress Surveen Chawla and actor Sushant Singh.
