The film will be scripted by Neeraj Vora.

Shemaroo is looking to produce five to seven films in the next two years.

Serious with its commitments and pooling in the best resources in the industry, Shemaroo plans to present several new ventures in 2006-07. These projects are aimed to be multi-starrers with the production house leaving no stone unturned to make the best of each opportunity.

Other projects are currently under discussion to fill the release pipeline for 2007. Shemaroo will also be looking into producing video and TV films over a period of time.

Shemaroo VP Hiren Gada says, "Shemaroo received a tremendous response from partners and sponsors for its first film for its sheer professionalism and production value. We believe our forthcoming ventures will be welcomed with an even better response."
