Dev Anand to release film on 85th birthday

MUMBAI: Veteran filmmaker Dev Anand will soon launch his next film, Charge Sheet.

Says the producer-director, “The script of Charge Sheet is complete. It is a thriller; a  whodunit kind of movie. The casting is still on. We will have a month-long shooting schedule in Himachal Pradesh. I plan to release the film along with my book Romancing With Life – my autobiography to be published by Penguin Books, on my 85th birthday; which falls on 26 September this year.”

Charge Sheet is one of the three films Anand is contemplating. Among the other films to be made by him include one based on the murder of King Mahendra of Nepal in Kathmandu and an English film, When Heartbeats Are The Same, to be made in Croatia. Meanwhile, he has scrapped plans of making another film, Beauty Queen, it is learnt.
