Rahul to direct, Akshaye to produce a film?

With his film career never really taking off, Rahul Khanna, the 37 year old son of yesteryears actor Vinod Khanna had left for the US to do some theatre work which he preferred. But our sources claim that he is coming back to Mumbai to work on his directorial debut venture which most probably will be produced by his father Vinod Khanna and brother Akshaye Khanna.

Having faced defeat in the recently concluded Loksabha elections, Vinod Khanna has plans to be based in Mumbai for a longer period now and revive his production company. Our sources further claim that both Rahul and Akshaye have already worked on a script together and it has been planned that Rahul will direct the film himself.

Khanna began his career as a VJ with MTV Asia and was immensely popular across Asia. He made his feature film debut in Deepa Mehta’s Earth with Aamir Khan. He was later also seen as the solo male lead in Mehta’s Bollywood/ Hollywood (2003). Rahul’s mainstream Bollywood films include Elaan and Raqeeb. He has also been seen on stage in the New York production of the hit West-End play, East is East. Rahul’s other international credits include The Emperor’s Club with Kevin Kline.
