Akashdeep to direct Sonu Nigam in film


MUMBAI: Director Akashdeep’s next film Aankhon Aankhon Mein will feature singer Sonu Nigam in the lead.


Nigam’s stint as an actor in films like Jaani Dushman-Ek Anokhi Kahani, Kaash…Aap Hamare Hote and Love In Nepal has not been smooth, with all his films faring miserably at the box office. Nigam, who is currently on a US tour, was unavailable for comment.


While Akashdeep too was not available for comment, sources say Nigam has liked the script, which tells the story of a blind singer. Nigam is also slated to compose the music and sing songs in the film. The film is likely to be launched after the monsoon.


Aankhon Aankhon Mein is said to be inspired by a popular play Titlee, produced by veteran adman Alyque Padamsee. Akashdeep has played the protagonist in the stage production, along with Sharon Prabhakar.
