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

awaiting for resources to materialise so that he can begin work
on this ambitious project.

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