Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has finally come out of isolation. The filmmaker, who was unable to handle the failure of his last release
and hence underwent depression, is now back with his production
Teen Thay Bhai
which will be followed by Hindi remake of the Belgian film,
which will be helmed by Sunil Pandey.
Teen Thay Bhai
, which stars Om Puri, Deepak Dobriyal and Shreyas Talpade, and releases on April 1, Mehra says, “This comic caper is a story of three brothers who love to hate each other and are brought together by their grandfather’s will.”
At the moment, Mehra’s attention is also on his next directorial venture
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
, which is the story of known athlete Milkha Singh. However, Mehra denies that actor Akshay Kumar was approached for the lead role.
Mehra also shares that he was completely broken when
flopped. He says, “The problem was the fact drifted away from my vision of killing my protagonist. That did not really work. I just couldn’t digest the fact that the audience had rejected my film. I locked myself up in my room and isolated myself. However, I want to release the original version of the film, where Abhishek Bachchan dies at the start of the film.”
