The Bandra boy helms the variation of Julian Barnes’ Booker successful ‘unfilmable’ e-book The Sense OF An Ending, and Robert Redford’s closing movie, Our Souls At Night time, with Jane Fonda—each out in 2017. Woah!
We’ve seen the Bengali unique, ‘Rajkahini’, that Vidya’s ‘Begum Jaan’ is a remake of. There’s sufficient meat in it for the result in ship a knock-out punch. Vidya, we imagine, will ship.
