Imtiaz Ali always manages to get our attention, every time he works on a film. Currently, the filmmaker is promoting his brother’s directorial venture, Laila Majnu starring Avinash Tiwary and Tripti Dimri. While we cannot wait to witness this love saga, the filmmaker announced his next project on the occasion of Janmashtami and we are already excited.
Ali who has given us films like Jab We Met, Tamasha and Highway is currently working on his next script which will narrate the story of Radha and Krishna’s love saga. Sharing the news with his fans, Imtiaz wrote,

I have always been fascinated by the eternal love story of Radha and Krishna. In all of Indian folklore I know of no other story, which is so intensely personal and yet has such an epic scale. It has been my dream to step into the world of Radha Krishna. And I shall do so with my next film in association with @reliance.entertainment which will be written & directed by me based on this epic love saga for generations. #WindowSeatFilms
I never announced a film. I never said I am making a film. I never said I am working with Shahid Kapoor. So now when people ask me that the film is not happening, I reply, ‘Which film?’ I never said it. Jisne bola usko bolo (Go talk to the person who spoke about it). There’s no truth to it.
There will be more news like this because the fact is, I keep meeting actors because some of them I have worked with and there are going to be friendships, we meet, there is always going to be some speculation…
I have developed two screenplays. I have turned producer so I have to keep some material ready… The only asset that you have in this work is a script. So once these four scripts are ready, depending upon the availability of the suitable actors, I will start working.
Coming back to this flick, we can’t wait for Imtiaz to cast the leads already!
