Sanjay Bhansali’s Launch Pad For His Niece As Grand As His Own Films

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s  launch film for his niece Sharmin Sehgal is almost ready.Entitled Malaal  the film is  directed byMangesh Hadawale who has earlier directed that  beautiful but unreleased  drama Dekh Circus Dekh with Nawazuddin Siddiqui in  the  lead.

Dekh Circus Dekh was made  on a shoestring budget. But Hadawale has a mammoth budget at  his disposal for his  second directorial.

In Malaal the producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali has spared no expense  to give the product that grand  look associated  with the ‘SLB’ brand.

A  source  from the team says, “Firstly, he(Sanjay Bhansali) agreed  to produce a film to launch his niece only because he saw her potential and not because  she is his niece. Secondly he has cast Javed Jafrey’s son  Mizaan  opposite Sharmin. The two are already being hailed as a remarkably talented pair on a par with Ranbir-Sonam whom  Bhansali introduced 11 years  ago inSaawariya. Mizaan and Sharmin are  already  being sought  out by other producers desirous  of  casting them. Thirdly, Malaalwill have all the epic grandeur of a  typical Sanjay Leela Bhansali film.”

Malaal  is  expected  to be the  first of  a number of Bhansali productions launching  newcomers. The  next in line is PoonamDhillon and Ashok Thakeria’s son Anmol . Poonam Dhillon’s best friend Padmini  Kolhapure’s son  Priyank Sharma is also  likely to be  launched  by Bhansali.
