‘Kaanchi’ is very promising: Subhash Ghai

Mumbai, May 13 (IANS) Filmmaker Subhash Ghai, who is currently busy with his directorial venture “Kaanchi”, calls it a promising film that has been made with great energy and passion.

“‘Kaanchi’ is a very promising film. I have made it with great energy and passion and I hope that you (audience) will feel that energy and passion in the theatre,” Ghai told reporters here Sunday during the celebration of 100 years of Indian cinema at his institute Whistling Woods International.

“Kaanchi” features Kartik Tiwari and newcomer Mishti in the lead roles. The film also features Rishi Kapoor and Mithoon Chakraborty.

In his more than three-decade-long career so far, Ghai not only discovered talents like Manisha Koirala (with “Saudagar”) and Mahima Chaudhry (with “Pardes”) but has also worked with big and established stars like Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit and Shah Rukh Khan, among others.

And now in his latest directorial “Kaanchi”, he is working with new faces but for Ghai, it is the story which is important.

According to him, everyone who can pull out the character in his film, is a star for him.

“For me, only that person is star who is in front of the camera at that moment, whether he is a newcomer, or a star,” Ghai said.

“For me, my subject, my story (that I am telling) is important. For me, all the actors with whom I am working are superstars and vice-versa. Even a superstar is always an actor for me, who is playing a character,” he added.

“Kaanchi” is a love story of a young, beautiful girl from northern mountains, who fights against power.

It is slated to release Aug 30.
