No the talented director isnâ€™t getting romantic in real life. He made an overtly youth oriented film on patriotism, â€˜Rang De Basantiâ€™ and then yet another social drama aimed at the younger generation. After all that, filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is all set to try his hand at romance.
He has said, â€œI think I am ready for romance now. I wasnâ€™t ready for romance earlier as I hadnâ€™t matured enough. Now I think I do understand humans and their inner and darker side. I am planning to make an intense romantic film, as I am not a Mills and Boons kind of a guy who believes in the idea of happily ever after. I believe the greatest romantic stories ever told have had tragedy at the helm of it.â€
It will be really interesting to see how this serious director dabbles with romance and shows off his softer side. Very interesting, indeed.
