After tons of steamy sex, bare backs and even a smooching controversy, director-producer Mahesh Bhatt is
set to make four new films - "Holiday", "Blue Film", "Show Business" and "Actress". Films, he guarantees,
that will titillate again.
"Even some of the names are given to titillate," Bhatt tells on the sidelines of a promotion visit to New Delhi for his film "Nazar" with Pakistani actress Meera, who plays the lead in the film.
"I make films for the masses and that's what the masses want."
"Blue Film", one of the four projects that Bhatt hopes to complete in 2005, will bring out the plight of a protagonist who becomes a victim in the blue film industry.
"It makes good business sense for me to make four to five films a year. This is how we earn our profits," Bhatt said.
"'Blue Film' is about cyber pornography that is rampant in India today. It is the story of a victim who locks horns with the industry," Bhatt said.
"Show Business" will explore the darker side of the glamour world and the media's obsession with all things sensational. It chronicles the life of a talent-hunt winner whose life is transformed by overnight fame.
Pooja Bhatt's "Holiday" will star Dino Morea and will be shot in a start-to-finish schedule from May 15 to June 15.
Mohit Suri, who directed "Zeher", will direct "Blue Film", which is inspired by a recent sex scandal in which a young, newlywed couple discovered that their intimate moments during their honeymoon were filmed by the staff of Hotel Park Plaza in Ludhiana.
Kunal Khemu, who debuted in Mahesh Bhatt's "Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke" and later worked in other Bhatt films like "Dushman" and "Zakhm", will play the male lead.
Deepal Shaw, who shoot to fame in the steamy music videos 'Kabhi Aar Kabhi Par' and 'Rangeela Re', will play the other woman in Khemu's life, a porn star that Khemu befriends so that he can bust the porn racket. The girl who will play Khemu's wife is yet to be finalized.
