Zee Telefilms to produce second movie

Zee Telefilms plans to produce its second movie at Rs 10 crore, even as its maiden venture, Gadar, is set for release in mid-June this year. Zee has approached Aamir Khan for the movie and is waiting to hear from the star actor. The script has been finalised and the movie is tentatively called Waaris.

Two more big movies are also in the pipeline with a budget of around Rs 20 crore for each. While the script is ready for a political futuristic movie, the other is a love story between a non resident Indian (NRI) and an Indian girl. The scheduling of these movies will depend on the success of Gadar. The political movie will predict how the system will be after 10 years.

Zee Telefilms has been involved in the commissioning but never in the direct production of a feature film. Fareb, the first commissioned feature film, had a fair degree of theatrical success and is yet to be shown on the Zee channels. It is the first time Zee will be producing a feature film directly.

Zee is commissioning two feature films, one by Priyadarshan and the other by MS Sathyu. Mr. BL Gautam, who is in charge of movie acquisition for the Zee channels, is handling the commissioning of movies. The budget for these movies is around Rs 4 crore each.
