Director Anees Bazmee upbeat with four films in kitty


Mumbai: After his hat trick comprising Singh is Kinng, Welcome and No Entry, all of which were comic capers, director Aneez Bazmee is all set to direct a love story.

The director, who has four films lined up with various production houses, will be first delivering It’s My Life, which stars Harman Baweja and Genelia D’souza. Produced by Sanjay Kapoor, the film is scheduled for a 2009 release.

Speaking exclusively to, Bazmee said, "The film I am currently working on is tentatively titled It’s My Life, which I am making for Sanjay. This is one film that I have wanted to make for a long time and it is completely different from the comedy films people associate me with."

It’s My Life will also mark Bazmee’s return to making a romantic film after Pyaar to Hona Hi Tha. Bazmee added, "I was planning to make this film right from the time I was making Singh Is Kinng. It is a simple love story, where the boy and girl want to get married but because of a problem they are not able to. It is about how they overcome that problem. The film is all about the treatment and characterization and the freshness it has in it."

When quizzed about the projects in his kitty, he said, "In March – April I will be working on an Anil Kapoor production starring Anil, Sanjay Dutt and Akshaye Khanna. Once this is completed I will work on a T-Series film with Salman Khan. Also I have signed one Studio 18 film, which unfortunately has taken a bit of a time to start. However, I am only working on one film at a time, contrary to what people believe."
