Following his success in redefining Bollywood’s fashion story, designer Manish Malhotra is going to make his directorial debut with an intense, musical love story.
Following his illustrious 30-year career, this new phase appears to be a natural step for the designer. Through costume design and styling, he has lent his Midas touch to over 800 films throughout the years.
In fact, he’s already pieced together the entire world of historical drama in his head, and it’ll only be a matter of time until he brings his vision to life on screen. Karan Johar, a long-time associate, director, and friend, is supporting him through Dharma Productions in this new period of his life.
“The story and screenplay of this intense musical love story, set in the backdrop of the partition, is also written by Malhotra. He has already envisioned the entire screenplay ready in his mind and casting for the film will begin shortly,” reveals a source to Hindustan Times.
