Dev Anand’s son Suneil Anand is planning to revive the family banner with an English directorial ‘Vagator Mixer’, followed by six films based on scripts left by his father.
Mumbai Mirror reports that Anand is determined to revive the banner called Navketan and has been in midst of shooting a 100-miniute English film without the typical song and dance sequences seen in Hindi films. Anand also denied reports that the banner was being sold off.
Talking to Mumbai Mirror, Anand said, “I have a legacy to take forward. The show will go on. The studio is presently being upgraded and renovated and we should be able to reopen it in four months. Before he passed away, dad and I felt the time was right to make a Hollywood film. He has left behind six scripts and I’d like to turn each into a movie. But the concept of Vagator Mixer is mine and I’ve worked with two American writers on the screenplay. We have about 20 per cent left to shoot which we will complete in Los Angeles,” says Suneil, who plans to wrap the film up by the year end.He intends to release it worldwide. In India he plans to dub it in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
