MUMBAI: After the debacle of his dream project Taj Mahal – An Eternal Love Story, producer-director Akbar Khan is planning a comeback with the launch of two new projects – Daddy Come Back and Chengis Khan.
Khan informs Businessofcinema.com that Chengis Khan will be made on a budget of Rs 1.25 billion (Rs 125 crores). “I love to showcase opulence in my films and a theme like Chengis Khan needs a huge budget to make it credible. This film will go on floors by the end of 2008 and Iâ€™m planning to cast international actors,â€ he says.
On the other hand, Daddy Come Back will have a budget of Rs 250 million (Rs 25 crores), which will have a contemporary theme. “Shooting will commence by this year end. At the moment, I’m finalizing the cast for the same,” he adds.
