Actor Anil Kapoor has teamed up with director Rajkumar Santoshi for a movie based on 1947 Partition
Kapoor and Santoshi have previously worked together in 'Pukar' (2000) and 'Lajja' (2001). Their third project is based on the Indo-Pak Partition drama and the 53-year-old actor has been roped in to play the lead role. "I am doing a film based on 1947 Partition.
It is a very dramatic film. I am working on it. It is too early to talk about the actors that I have on my wish list for this film except Anil Kapoor. He is playing a powerful character," Santoshi told PTI. Santoshi, however, did not elaborate on Kapoor's character.
The film is reportedly an adaptation of the play, 'Jis Lahore Nahi Dekhya Woh Jamiya Hi Nahin'.
"The film will have a universal message - promoting harmony in times of intolerance," said Santoshi without disclosing further details. Meanwhile, Santoshi is looking forward to the release of his directional venture, Shahid Kapoor-starrer 'Phata Poster Nikhla Hero', which will hit the theatres on September 20.
