MUMBAI: ActorÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ turned writer and director Ananth Narayan Mahadevan is busy shooting three films concurrently – Victoria No 203, Anamika and Agar.

They are Kamal Sadanah’s Victoria No. 203, a comedy caper; Bhanwar Lal Sharma and Ramesh Shah’s Anamika ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ The Untold Story, a drama; and Agar, a suspense drama. Like my earlier films, these three will also have a few stints in foreign locales.”
Victoria No. 203 stars Jimmy Shergill, Amrita Rao, Anupam Kher and Om Puri, “I have a super model playing the role of ‘Cat Woman’,” reveals Mahadevan. Major portions of the film have already been shot in Mumbai.
Mahadevan’s next film, Anamika stars Dino Morea and Minissha Lamba and is inspired by the Alfred Hitchcock classic Rebecca. A major schedule of the film has already been completed in Rajasthan. Agar, his third venture, has Tusshar Kapoor in the lead.
“Agar is being planned for a February ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ March 2007 release. All my films will be released by May,” he adds hopefully.
