Shekhar Kapur adds muscle to Anilís next
Even as Anand Tucker - of Leap Year and Shopgirl fame - gets ready to direct Anil Kapoor in Indian Sherlock (tentative title), TOI has now learnt that Shekhar Kapur has got involved with the project. Shekhar will not only give his creative inputs, he will also be the executive producer of the film.
Explaining how Shekhar got involved with the project, a source close to the film told TOI, "The film will be produced by Hemanshu Avasthi,who was Shekhar's business manager for the longest time. When Shekhar learnt about Avasthi's decision, he felt that he needed to throw himself into the project and support him in a big way."
While Anil Kapoor plays the lead in the film, it is expected to draw in several international actors as well. Added the source, "The induction of Shekhar in the film gives a big fillip and sets the stage for an extremely well-planned venture."
Shekhar met Tucker recently. "The two had a very long meeting. Now, everything is in place. The shooting will commence sometime in Rajasthan, later this year," said the source. When contacted, Shekhar said,"It was a damn good project and I am helping Hemanshu to put it together."
