Sanjay Leela Bhansali who is currently busy with Bajirao Mastani, is all set to get a new director on board for his next production. With directors like Omung Kumar who made their debut with SLB production (Mary Kom), casting director Mukesh Chabbra will now be joining the league.
Mukesh Chabbra has been the casting director for many renowned films including the recent blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Confirming the news, Mukesh said, “Sanjay Sir is putting his trust in me and I am thankful to him. I am on the path of realizing my dream. It is too early to talk about what the film will be about; but I need to pull up my socks and get ready to play this new role. After casting for so many films for so many amazing directors; this is a huge opportunity for me.”
On the other hand, producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali who is equally ecstatic about the association, added, “I see immense potential in Mukesh Chhabra as a filmmaker. His background in casting and foreseeing actors in characters, I believe, will work in his favor as a director.”
However, the untitled film is still in its initial stages and the casting and other details are yet to be finalized.
