Voice From the SKy to start next month?

Farhan Akhtar’s Rock On is continuously making news due to its unusual star cast and music. This film also marks the debut of Farhan Akhtar as an actor. But does this mean he’s not going to direct films? Well! No. The good news is that the Akhtar lad will direct a film after Rock On, which is titled as Voice from the Sky.

According to sources, the film will go on the floors some time next month. It is also heard that the film will in English. But the director turned actor refutes the news, “It's not! But it's a film that has tremendous international appeal. There's an audience for this film beyond India."

Farhan's partner Ritesh Sidhwani confirms, "It's a period film set in 1905 in Kolkata. It's about a child and the telephone invention. It's a fairytale. In fact, Farhan wanted to make this film immediately after Dil Chahta Hai. So far, only Akshaye Khanna has been confirmed for the film.”

Is the movie back in production or is this just rehash of news from the past?
