Aaditya Dutt to direct Keshu’s next


MUMBAI: After the debacle of Family – Ties of Blood last year, producer Keshu Ramsey plans to return with a few new projects.

Ramsey was supposed to have launched a film with Rajkumar Santoshi, one of his favorite directors, who helmed Family – Ties Of Blood and Khakee, earlier in 2004.

However, it is learnt that the producer has signed Aaditya Dutt to direct his next. Sources say the film, a quickie, will be made on a modest budget and will star Keshu’s son Aryeman in the lead. Akshay Kumar may make a guest appearance in the film. Anu Malik will compose the music for the film, that will mount the sets soon.

Dutt, assistant to Vikram Bhatt in Kasoor and grandson of the late lyricist Anand Bakshi, had made his directorial debut in Aashiq Banaya Aapne. Made on a modest budget, the film managed to recover its cost. His next film Dil Diya Hai with the same hero (Emraan Hashmi) did not do well.
