'Hasratein' director ventures into film direction

After making a name for himself directing serials like Hasratein and Justujoo, Ajai Sinha is now ready to go 70 mm.

His first Bollywood directorial venture is titled The Bachelor. Produced by Mahendra Dhariwal (of Maa Tujhe Salaam fame) and written by Raghuveer Shekhawat and Sinha himself , the film is a romantic comedy, he says. As the name suggests, it's the story of three bachelors- two collegians and one professor. 

"It's a story of youthful notoriety, fun, mischief and disguise," says Ajai. Is the movie inspired by the success of Style? "No, not really. None of my projects even on TV have been inspired by other people's work. Like my serials, this movie will be unique in its content and treatment."

Has his decision to enter the movie arena got to do with his disillusionment with the TV scenario? "Yes and no. It is true that producers today have very little say as far as pushing their own stories/concepts are concerned and have no option but to do what the channels want them to. But none of my decisions in life have been taken out of compulsion. I had this story with me for the last five years. It's just that with the small- budget movie scene looking up now, it was relatively easier for me to get a producer.

"But does that mean quits as far as his TV projects go?

"No way. Justujoo will go on for some time. So, TV will continue to be my bread and butter."
