Director Raj Kaushal’s second innings!

Mumbai: After a debacle in Pyar Mein Kabhi Kabhi and Shaadi ka Laddoo, director Raj Kaushal is back another stint in Nikhil Panchmiya’s Anthony Kaun Hai? starring Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi, who will be seen together again for the first time since Munnabhai MBBS. ‘I was inexperienced while shooting Pyar Mein Kabhi Kabhi and because of that, I made a few mistakes’ says Raj ‘As for Shaadi ka Laddoo, my hands were tied by the budget given to me by the producer and that affected the film.

When Nikhilji gave me this golden opportunity with Anthony Kaun Hai, I told myself that this was my last chance and completely dedicated myself to the film. I put a into this film and now I’m waiting for the release. I hope it does well’. Did he cast Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi together because of success of Munnabhai MBBS? ‘Not at all, actually, I’ve been writing the script of this film for the last two years, during which I had wanted to cast Arshad. Originally, I had wanted to cast Amitabh Bachchan for this role. Then we also thought about Ajay Devgan and Anil Kapoor. You could call it a coincidence that Arshad and Sanjay are appearing together in my film after

Munnabhai. However, neither is Sanju’s character anything like Munnabhai, nor is Arshad’s character anything like Circuit. Anthony Kaun Hai is very different from Munnbhai MBBS‘ adds Raj.
