Akshaye in Revathy's film?

After Aamir Khan's wife Kiran Rao, it seems Maanayata Dutt is the next star-wife producer in the industry. Needless to say, hubby Sanjay Dutt will play the lead in her debut venture.

A well-placed industry source states that Maanayata will be launching her maiden production sometime later this year.

Two-hero project
According to him, "Revathy Verma will be directing the two-hero movie, which will be a perfect balance of her sensibilities and commercial viability. Apart from Sanju, who will obviously feature as one of the leads, Akshaye Khanna has been confirmed."

However, Dharam Oberoi, CEO, Sanjay Dutt Productions, denies the news saying, "Maanayata bhabhi is not making any movie, nor have we spoken to Revathy. So the question of confirming Sanjuji or Akshaye Khanna doesn't arise either."

Nonetheless, our source, standing by the story, maintains that the film is very much on. "Currently, Revathy is busy with her Malayalam film with Prithviraj and Shriya Saran. Only after that is complete, will things on her movie with the Dutts be finalised," states the source.

Although this is not confirmed, it's good news that there's more talk about Akshaye signing new movies. This is the third we've heard recently. Revathy is a good director, hope this movie pans out.

Akshaye in Dharmesh Darshan's next?

Remember Dharmesh Darshan? Well, the director is all set to make a comeback after five years. Aap Ki Khatir was the flick he had directed in 2006. After that, he did make a film titled Bhanwara with TV actors in the lead but it failed to release.

Our source says, “Dharmesh Darshan has just entered into an agreement with Venus to make a film for them. The director is talking to Akshaye Khanna and Arshad Warsi for this film. Like all Darshan films, this will be an emotional drama.”

Ganesh Jain of Venus confirms, “Yes, we are making a film with him but that is all I can say right now.”
