Imtiaz Ali is one of Bollywood’s most famous filmmakers and writers. He is known for creating passionately real and raw characters and plots. If there’s anyone who understands modern romance and knows how to portray it on the big screen, it’s him. Many of his directed films were commercially successful. As the filmmaker turns 51, here are some of his upcoming and latest works.
Imtiaz Ali has acquired the rights to the biopic of Amar Singh Chamkila, who was known as the Elvis of the Punjabi music industry. The biopic titled Chamkeela will feature the life of Amar Singh Chamkila and his wife Amarjot Kaur, who were murdered in 1988. The case is still unsolved. According to media reports, Imtiaz cast Parineeti Chopra and Diljit Dosanjh for the lead roles.
- Thai massage
Another film in preparation is Thai Massage, for which Imtiaz has carved out a producer’s cap. The film is set in Ujjain and Thailand and is about a 70 year old man who suffers from erectile dysfunction. The film stars Gajraj Rao, Divyendu Sharma and Rajpal Yadav and is set to release on August 26 this year.
- I love Aaj Kal
His latest works include Love Aaj Kal, with Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan in the lead roles. The film is a take on the 2009 film of the same name, also directed by Imtiaz Ali. Although the film’s plot was somewhat similar to the original, it featured elements of a more refined Imtiaz Ali.
Imtiaz Ali has proven his work time and time again through hits like Highway, Jab We Met and Rockstar. The writer-director recently made a foray into the OTT world with a web series called She. The series was released on Netflix in 2020.
