Subhash Ghai returns to direction after a hiatus of five years with this ambitious project. Ghai had last directed the Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Yuvvraaj.
Subhash Ghai has been a wonderful mentor to Kartik who plays the male lead in Kaanchi. Talking about his shooting experience, the actors says, "We shot in Nainital for 15-20 days and it felt like a picnic. The place was beautiful and we'd end up partying every day. But we also worked very hard."
Elaborating on the showman of Bollywood, he adds, "Subhash sir is very clear with what he wants. He saw to it that we completed our daily schedule on time. I don't know how he managed that. This was my first experience with him and he's happy with the entire cast. He has so much passion and energy, I can't imagine myself in his shoes and doing what he does. The amount of effort he's put into Kaanchi, he's going to make it big with this film."
