Muzzafar Ali mulls film on Persian poet Rumi

MUMBAI: Muzzafar Ali, known for his films like Umrao Jaan, is currently working on a new project based on great Persian poet Rumi.


The 68-year-old, also behind other films like Gaman, says that he is awaiting for resources to materialise so that he can begin work on this ambitious project.


"I am waiting for people with resources to understand my thinking and support my ideas. Sometimes it happens, then it doesn‘t, so there are a lot of ifs and buts. It takes a lot of work to get everyone on the same page," Ali said.


But before he could hit the floors, the director wants to finish work on his Vinod Khanna-Dimple Kapadia starrer Zooni.


“Since Zooni is half complete, I want to finish that after which I will start working on the film about ‘Rumi-the poet. Once I have the support, I will think about star cast," he observed.


Ali was speaking on the sidelines of the 43rd International Film Festival of India where he is being paid a special tribute with his Rekha starrer Umrao Jaan being screened there.
