There’s a new on-screen couple set to hit Bollywood, and a whole new genre too. Fox STAR Studios has announced that it will co-produce the Ajay Devgn-Anushka Sharma rustic comedy ‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’, which will be directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.
Set in Haryana, the film will be co-produced by Fox STAR Studios along with Vishal Bhardwaj Pictures, Ajay Devgn Films and Wide Frame Pictures.
"When Vishal told me that he was looking at creating a comedy and he narrated the script, I was immediately excited and became a part of the project" Ajay said.
National Award-winning filmmaker Vishal will also compose the music for the movie.
He said about his new project, "I have had the idea for this comedy in my head for a long time, almost eight years. It’s a totally new genre and completely different from what I have done in my previous seven films.
"I was also missing working with Ajay for some time. He is such a great actor and an even greater human being. I am so much in sync him that the wait to be on the set is killing. As for Anushka, I would say that she is a ball of energy, the harder you throw her – the higher she will go. I’m looking forward to shooting with her," said Bhardwaj.
Gulzar will write the lyrics for the movie, which is scheduled for a 2012 release.
Fox STAR Studios produced and distributed films like ‘My Name Is Khan’, ‘Khichdi: The Movie’,’Stanley Ka Dabba’, ‘Dum Maro Dum’ and their next is the John Abraham-starrer ‘Force’.(IANS)
