Special conversation: Raj Mehta (Harshad Purushottamdas Mehta), MD of Ashtavinayak Cinevajan, which had made films like ‘Jab We Met’, ‘Golmaal’, ‘Rockstar’, ‘Kidnap’ and ‘Blue’ in his time, was sentenced to six and a half years in September last year. Got out of jail. Now there are reports in the trade corridors that he is launching a new company. Under his banner, he is bringing a new age thriller. For that, he has signed ‘Hate Story 2 and 3’ fame director Vishal Pandya. However, Vishal has sought time to confirm about this.
There are 2-3 producers on this project: Vishal
Vishal to Dainik Bhaskar said, “There are 2-3 producers on this project. There is a banner of the new company. Figuring out which people are to be named and how to announce the names. We will make an announcement about that soon. Until then. Just wait. All I can say at this point of time is that it is a New Age thriller. Not erotic. Revenge is in it. We are locking castings till the middle of this April.”
Gaurang Doshi was also jailed in Dubai
Apart from Raj Mehta, recently Gaurang Doshi has also come into action mode after serving his jail term in Dubai. In January last year, Gaurang was jailed in Dubai. Prior to that, in October 2020, he had gone to Dubai with 20 artists including Madhavan, Rohit Roy, Vijay Raj. He was about to shoot a web series called ‘Seventh Sense’ there. But at the last moment, there was a difference of opinion between Gaurang Doshi and the financier of the project. The financier stopped funding and the project got stuck. Gaurang could not even pay the travel agents. As a result, a case was filed against him and he was imprisoned.”
However, now the latest news is that he is out and has revived that project. He has also shot the title track on that project. It is sung by Honey Singh and DJ Shadow. This has also been confirmed by Rohit Roy. Rohit said, “I don’t want to comment on the jail issue. Of course the project has been revived. The work on that series, however, is on. We are supporting them.” However, bottlenecks continue on this project. Officials of the Writers’ Association said that there is a difference of opinion between Gaurang Doshi and the writer over the project. Writer’s payment is pending. Only after that they can start this project again.
