Rajkumar Santoshi To Launch daughter
Neckdeep in unfinished projects, the one-time successful filmmaker Rajkumar Santoshi is all set to launch his daughter in a project titled Gandhi Versus Godse .
The film is adapted from the controversial play Asghar Wajahat’s [email protected] . The provocative play which brings Gandhi and his killer Godse face-to-face is likely to raise a hornet’s nest on screen for trying to “humanize’ Gandhiji’s assassin.
We wonder what Santoshi’s daughter would have to do in a film where she plays neither of the protagonists. Theatre actors Deepak Antani and Chinmay Mandlekar who essayed the roles of Gandhi and Godse on stage have reprised their parts in Santoshi’s film.
Incidentally, Santoshi’s daughter Tanisha is best friends with Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor. Sridevi and Santoshi’s wife Manali were also close friends. Perhaps launching Tanisha in a Boney Kapoor production would have been a better idea.
