Gulzar To Write Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Next 'Mirza'

Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who is currently busy with the post-production of his upcoming film, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, has already started planning his next project. The Rang De Basanti director's next project has been titled Mirza. The film is said to be a contemporary love story, based on the legendary love story between Mirza and Sahibaan.

Although Rakeysh, who has also directed Aks and Delhi-6, prefers to write his own scripts, he will be making an exception this time around. Sources reveal that Gulzar will be penning the screenplay of the film. Apparently, Mehra wanted to work with Gulzar ever since he was a 22-year-old, and had gone to meet him with a copy of Devdas at that time.

Speaking about this incident, Mehra says, “He didn’t know me and I just walked up to him, kept the book on his table and said, ‘I want you to write this film for me.’ And now 27 years later, he is actually writing a film for me! It’s a dream come true for me.”

The film will go on floors soon.
