It's Delhi!

Anil Kapoor has finally decided to take the lid off his debut project as a director . His hush-hush film Gandhi My Father, which portrays the troubled relationship between Mahatma Gandhi and his eldest son Harilal , will have its firstever public event in the city on Tuesday. The film has been kept away from the public glare till now. As Anil says, "There is a right time to speak about every film. My idea while making the film was to focus only on making it." But why Delhi? "I'm flagging off my film's campaign in Delhi as I think being the national capital of our country; it's just the right place. My entire team including Bhumika Chawla, Akshaye Khanna, Feroze Khan and Shefali Shah is coming down to Delhi for this gala event coming Tuesday . The film is about the father of the nation and it seems right to begin the journey of Gandhi My Father from Delhi. Even acclaimed cinematographer David McDonald is coming for the function," he says. The city was chosen over Sabarmati Ashram in Gujarat, Johannesburg in South Africa and Mumbai. ANIL ON DILLI "I'm flagging off the campaign for my film Gandhi My Father in Delhi because I feel that the capital of our country is just the right place to do that.”

For a movie that has no songs and has an unconventional story line, Anil is doing a real good job. Heis leading from the front in marketing department. Akshaye's movies have suffered from poor marketing, so it's great to finally have a prodcuer who's as agog as Anil is.
