OMG director Umesh Shukla's next film will be on scams
After tasting success with his latest film Oh My God, director Umesh Shukla is likely to make a film on scams highlighting the management of money.
Avers Umesh, “I am happy with the response to OMG. Currently, I am working on two-three ideas of which one is about scams like in share market, the recent scams that have come out, world banking and management of money. It is about the economy of India and the involvement of influential people, government and others.”
Elaborating on the same the OMG director says, “The film will be about how people dream big. It is about spending within your means and not spend more. It will not be about any particular scam but will talk in general."
Currently, Umesh is busy with the scripting along with co-writer Bhavesh Mandalia who had incidentally written OMG. "By a month or two, we should be done with the scripting. We had this idea about this film, but couldn’t work on the same as we were busy with OMG. Now that the film as released, we are toying around the film on scams in general," he observes.
For this film too, Umesh is contemplating to tap Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar to produce it but it is all in initial stages and nothing has been finalised. "The other idea that I have in mind is about a mature relationship between a man and a woman," Umesh adds.
If all goes well, the film will go on floors next year.
Besides OMG, Umesh has earlier directed Dhoondte Reh Jaoge, Almond Blossoms (video short) and In Winter Still.
