Balaji Motion Pictures is on a roll. With a string of preceding hits and a robust slate of forthcoming movies, the films studio has just added another feather to its cap. It has managed to snap hot-shot director Mohit Suri out of the Bhatts' camp.
With the success of Zeher, Woh Lamhe, Raaz 2, Awarapan, and more recently, Murder 2, Mohit has been in incredible demand from producers and actors alike. The director who has never done a film for any producer other than the Bhatts, who are family, is said to have given his nod to a film with Balaji. He will, of course, continue to direct for the Bhatts' Vishesh Films, his next project being the keenly awaited musical, Aashiqui 2, being co-produced by T-Series.
The director and producer are believed to have identified a subject and the writing has started. When contacted, Suri confirmed, “Right now, I'm focused on Aashiqui 2. The project with Balaji will work out after that.”
Stated Tanuj Garg, CEO - Balaji Motion Pictures, “Yes, we're in talks with Mohit. He's among the most accomplished young directors on the scene today. We will work on the casting once the script is complete.”
