Mahesh Bhatt looking for reinvention with 'Begum Jaan'

Mahesh Bhatt looking for reinvention with

Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt says producing Vidya Balan-starrer "Begum Jaan" is a conscious decision with a motive to reinvent. After churning out content running high on sex and thrill, Mahesh asserts that he has come back to subjects that he explored during his formative years in Bollywood. "For us to move away completely from the cinema that we make, was a concious decision. And we are very happy that we did it. I have opted for this kind of cinema after 'Zakhm'. The last three films we made were almost non-films. They disappeared... So, as they say, 'in the darkest night you must begin from the point where you once started before'," Mahesh said. The filmmaker, who was here to promote the film "Begum Jaan", added this is a new journey that he is embarking upon with his banner Vishesh Films -- it's a revival of sorts in a way.
