Subhash Ghai’s associate turns director

MUMBAI: Shashi Vadeeya, for long known as Subhash Ghai’s associate director, will now wield the megaphone independently.


Says Vadeeya, “My film is an out and out comedy. The film is produced under the banner of H R Enterprises and is titled Ulta Seedha. Neeraj Vora is scripting the film, and Paresh Rawal will play the main protagonist.”


Vadeeya first assisted Vinod Talwar in 1984 in a film titled Lorie, which starred Farooque Sheikh, Shabana Azmi, Swaroop Sampat and Naseeruddin Shah. Thereafter, he joined Ghai and began with assisting him on Karma, which was released in 1986.
