"It's too early to get into Benazir's project" - Mahesh Bhatt

Mahesh Bhatt has no plans of directing the Benazir Bhutto project, which will be made in collaboration with Pakistan. "I'm through with direction. My last film as director was Zakhm. Then I hung up my boots. The page in my life has turned."

So what is the truth about the proposed Benazir project? "I was approached by a lady from Pakistan who wants us (Vishesh Films) to collaborate with them. In principal we're on." However, Mahesh thinks it's too early to get into the project. "The news of the project came from Pakistan. We didn't announce it. We've to get a go-ahead from Benazir's family and her party. The blood is still fresh on the streets. It isn't right to talk about a movie on the slain leader's life at this stage."

Regarding the crucial question as to who will direct the Benazir project, Mahesh says, "It would most probably be a Pakistani director. He may bring into the protagonist's character and her surroundings an understanding, which we may lack. We at Vishesh Films will back them with our team."
