‘Genius’, a battle between the heart and mind: Anil Sharma

‘Showman’ film-maker Anil Sharma made cinematic history with the period revolt love-story mega-blockbuster Sunny Deol starrer ‘Gadar’ ( 2001). After a string of other movies, Anil has just wrapped-up his latest movie ‘Genius’ where he has launched his own handsome son Utkarsh Sharma opposite this promising newcomer heroine Ishita. On the occasion of his own birthday (March 7), Anil hosted a lavish ‘wrap-up’ star-studded evening party along with co-producers Deepak Mukut and Kamal Mukut,  which had both ‘star-guests’ Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol in attendance.  Enthused Anil, “My son Utkarsh,who had played young ‘Jeetey’ in ‘Gadar’, will be loved by today’s audiences, in our unique movie ‘Genius’.  

The theme of our movie is ‘dil ki ladaai dimaag sey’ (battle between the heart and the mind). Since the script required a fresh face, I am introducing beautiful Ishita who exudes  this innocent charm. We were fortunate that we could also include acclaimed actors Nawazuddin Siddiqui  in a ‘challenging’ prominent role, Mithun-da  and former Bollywood heroine Ayesha Jhulka (of ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar’ fame) playing the heroine’s mother, in the cast. As the icing on the filmy cake, we have awesome, rocking melodies by Himesh Reshammiya,” insists Sharma senior who is optimistic, that his current movie title ‘Genius’ starting with ‘G’ will once again be lucky for his son Utkarsh, just as it happened during ‘Gadar’. Refuting rumours that he was ‘extra-lenient’ towards his ‘hero-son’,  Anil says,” When I am in the director’s chair I am a tough task-master and I never compromise in okaying the best shots. Knowing his calibre,  I feel Utkarsh will carve his own success graph,” signs off the director.
