He directed the biggest blockbuster of Bollywood followed by few other hits starring top stars of industry. Then his son took the realm of things and senior guy took the back seat. But now he is set to make a grand and fitting comeback with a genre of film which he never tried in his prolific career. We are talking about the director any epics Ramesh Sippy who re wrote box office history with "Sholay" followed by strings of superb films like "Shakti", "Saagar", "Seeta Aur Geeta" and "Andaz".
Says Sippy, "I am aware I haven't directed a film for many years. But, I saw no reason to jump into it just because of a time lapse. I've made films out of very powerful scripts in the past. Then I directed "Zamana Deewana" in 1995, which was not that strong in content. Then I decided if I found no script worth shooting, I won't direct another film if I didn't get the right script."
Fortunately, for Ramesh Sippy and for us his fans, the right script has showed up. And Sippy Saab is all set to explore a genre that he has never attempted before.
"It's thriller. An out-and-out thriller written for me by Sridhar Raghvan. Sridhar has worked extensively for our production company. He has written the script for my son's "Bluff Master" and "Dum Maaro Dum". When I read Sridhar's script, I instantly felt I was ready for direction again," admits the director who made the single-most influential film in Hindi commercial cinema.
There were a couple of false starts recently. It was reported that Ramesh Sippy was directing a romantic film. But, as he says he has already attempted the most romantic film he could think of, namely
. "The challenge for me is to venture into the unknown every time I direct a film. When I directed my first film "Andaz", it was considered risky to do a love story between a widow and a widower. The thrill in doing a thriller is that I have never attempted this genre before."
The details are now being worked out and Sippy Saab hopes to start his thriller by year-end.
Sighs Sippy Saab, "It's a different world since I last directed a film. Now everything during the process of filmmaking is more corporatized. So I'm tying up with a corporate house."
Though Sippy Senior says it's too early to talk of casting, a little birdie tells us that Sippy Saab would be working again with Big B in the thriller.
Now if the teaming up of the "Sholay", "Shakti" and "Shaan"
combo of Sippy and Bachchan is not thrilling and epic, then what is
