OMG director Umesh Shukla Plans a Film on Scams Expose
Umesh Shukla, a rather quiet and low profile maker of this year’s biggest surprise superhit OMG Oh My God!, has newer plans up his sleeves. He is gearing up for his next and one of the short-listed subjects at the top of his list is an expose on scams. The film may also feature Umesh’s favourite Paresh Rawal.
“There are headlines around scams dominating news channels for so many years now. From Harshad Mehta’s scam of near 5000 crores, today our country has graduated to scams that are no less than 1 lac crores. 3G, Coalgate are prime examples of that. Now the OMG team would be making a film which would again be socially relevant and issue raising while being entertaining”, informs a source.
Just like OMG, the director is sure that he won’t be getting into an overtly serious zone where the narrative turns dreary.
“Yes, that’s a subject which I am close to but I want to present it in a way that is simple for all to understand. The film needs to reach out to people right from my mother who be totally clueless about what happens behind the scenes as well as an insider who has knowledge of all the murky deals”, says Umesh.
As for Paresh Rawal’s presence in the film, he said, “All casting details would be announced later. However Paresh Rawal would be a part of my films in some way or the other. He is a friend, philosopher and guide.”
Well Umesh, all we can say is, we are waiting indeed for your next.
