Mansoor Khan to make Bollywood comeback
Now this is going to be ‘big breaking news’ for all those who actually thought that one of Indian Film Industry’s gem was lost and took a sabbatical. His career began way back with Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, followed by Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander, Akele Hum Akele Tum and then Josh. Now in such cases, you really don’t want the readers to keep guessing. So I can simply put it like – MANSOOR KHAN IS BACK!
Yes, the producer of Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na is back to where he belongs and back to what he does best. As of now, Aamir Khan has once again urged him to step into writing, and that too for Aamir Khan Productions. Aamir clarified the above when I met him yesterday at the Taj Lands End in Bandra where he was giving interviews for his next production Delhi Belly.
He quotes, “Mansoor Khan is a great talent. He produced Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na with me. I had to convince him for that (laughs). But this time I’ve convinced him to write for me too. After a long time, he will be coming back to writing in films. Four of us – I, Kiran, Mansoor and Nuzhat are working on it together. We start writing next month.”
On asking him who will direct the film, the pioneer said, “Kiran will be directing the film and yes, at the moment, I am planning to be one of the cast in that film.”
