Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the filmmaker who has made offbeat cinemas and has taken his audiences through the dark shades of life has decided to shift from dark and intense subjects to pure masala entertainer cinema. Bhansali will soon come up with a musical film – lively, chirpy and colourful.
All the subjects that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has dealt with so far has been diverse – Khamoshi, Devdas, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Black and Guzaarish to name a few.
However, in his upcoming films, My Friend Pinto, Rowdy Rathore and Shirin Farhad besides his musical film, Bhansali has moved to a different zone.
Speaking to PTI, Bhansali said, “I am back from intense and dark to colors...I am back to colors...I am back to full ''din tadak, paisa vasool'' entertainer film. I am moving into that zone again. I am in a bright upbeat mood right now I will make a musical movie. In that film there will be lot of songs like those in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam or Devdas. There will be lots of song and dance."
"I am in an upbeat mood. So Rowdy Rathore and Shirin Farhad, a weird comedy...all have taken me to another lane. I don't want to announce it....I will in June-July. I am still working on the musical film."
