Kunal Kohli impressed with 'Rang De Basanti'Jan 30, 2006 Manissha Despaande
The audiences may not have reacted overwhelmingly to Aamir Khan's presence in "Rang De Basanti", but the directors of his forthcoming films are definitely exuberant about the film.
Kunal Kohli, who is directing Aamir and Kajol in "Fanaah", has been raving about "Rang De Basanti" since he saw it, reports Bollywood Trade.
"It is a brilliant film with one of Aamir's brilliant trademark performances. I enjoyed watching every frame of the film. The last time I had felt similarly about Aamir's performance was in 'Lagaan'," says Kohli.
Ask him about the decision to shoot the remainder of "Fanaah" in Poland after Aamir's reported reluctance to shoot in Kashmir and Kohli withdraws into discreet silence.
"I have decided not to say anything on the film till I complete it and it is there for everyone to see. But, of course, Aamir is a great person to work with," he says.
"Fanaah" is currently 70 percent complete and the producers, Yash Raj, are targeting a grand Diwali release this year.
The film is set against the backdrop of Kashmir and has Aamir playing the role of a terrorist who falls in love with an innocent girl, played by Kajol. Tabu and Rishi Kapoor also play important roles in the film.
