More dope on the Priyan movie

Priyadarshan has teamed up with Akshaye Khanna once again. After making Hungama and Hulchul, the director and actor combo will be seen in yet another rib-tickling comedy Mere Baap Pehle Aap. Another interesting aspect of the film is that the director has signed powerful actors like Naseeruddin Shah and Shobhana along with Priyan regulars Paresh Rawal, Om Puri, Rajpal Yadav and Manoj Joshi for the project in question. Genelia D’Souza, who made her debut opposite Ritesh Deshmukh in Tujhe Meri Kasam, is the leading lady of this film that’s produced by Shemaroo Entertainment P. Ltd.

Meanwhile, Shemaroo is planning to start a string of projects. There’s a co-production with Vishal Bharadwaj next, titled Ishkiyan, to be directed by Abhishek Chaubey, who was the associate director in Makdee, Maqbool and Omkara.

Next on the cards is Channo, to be directed by E. Niwas and of course, the remake of Padosan, which will star Sanjay Dutt, Ritesh Deshmukh and Paresh Rawal. Talks are on with one more lead man. Neeraj Vora will direct this film.


Shobhana in an Akshaye film? It's a dream come true. Hope they won't make her his mother or something but both of them will have show their immense acting talents. This movie getting better in my eyes.

The new Race promo is out on Indiafm Broadband. Not too much of Akshaye in the title song which sucks!

This is what I don't understand! Why is such versatile and gifted actor like Akshaye Khanna being under-utilized! That too in Abbas Mustan's film?! Strange!!

Just to be clear, I'm pretty sure that's Shobhana, the South Indian actress, and not Shabana Azmi - you might already know that, I can't quite tell.
