RBN Web Desk: Padmaavat, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, is still in the midst of much controversy but that has not deterred the filmmaker to announce a bigger film. Trust Bhansali—a director known to capture larger than life scenes on 70mm—not to rest on his laurels.
According to a report published in Deccan Chronicle, the producers who supported Bhansali during his tough times while making Padmaavat, are eager to back his next project. Viacom 18 Motion Pictures is likely to produce his next film which will have the typical grandeur associated with a Bhansali project.
Sources disclosed that it will be a big-budget musical epic since Sanjay Leela Bhansali can’t think small. Even films like Black (2005) and Guzaarish (2010) had modest budgets but were mounted on a grand scale. It would have been obvious for the 54-year old director to plan something smaller, But that’s not his way, sources added.
Viacom 18, if reports are to be believed, is already preparing to invest ₹150-175 crore for the next Bhansali film.
