After Paa, AB Corp produced a Marathi film, Vihir, and is now juggling with four scripts. “Two of the films will be made in Marathi and one in Bengali. We’ve just received another good script and the director is open to making the film in any language. Regional cinema has some wonderful talent and we want to give them a good platform,” informs Abhishek Bachchan.
The actor-turned-producer insists that for his company, production is not just a money making venture. “Obviously, we’re not producing films for charity, but I want everyone to earn from it. At the same time, I want to make films that we believe in, even if it means gambling Rs 14 crore on an unconventional subject like Paa,” asserts Bachchan.
Encouraged by the success of Paa, he is prepared to go with a bigger budget the next time around, provided the film deserves it. So, what’s the next big project? Bachchan says that three to four scripts have been locked and are being developed. “We’ll see how they turn out, we’re in no hurry,” he says.
