Mahesh Dattani hard at work on new film

Playwright Mahesh Dattani is busy working on his latest project - a feature film. But it could take months before someone finds out what it's about.

The Bangalore-loving playwright who made his mark in filmdom with Mango Souffle and the Oscar-nominated Morning Raga is not revealing much at the moment.

Who will star in it? Will Shabana Azmi return after Morning Raga?

But Dattani's lips are sealed.

All he told Toe Knee Unplugged was -

"Madly working on the screenplay. I do have a few actors who are interested but it is a bit premature to mention names right now."
There's more good news in store for the 48-year-old writer. His play Double Deal starring Mahesh Manjrekar and Sandhya Mridul is doing quite well and was staged in Lucknow recently.
