Mumbai, Jan 19 (PTI) Young filmmaker Dibakar Banerjee,who is known for dishing out quirky and out-of-the box fare,says he is used to trouble as all his movies had their shareof problems.

Since early, I was exposed to everything as all my filmshad their own set of problems. Right from ''Khosla Ka Ghosla'',that took two years to release to ''Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye'',which hit screens during the 26/11 terror attacks, to ''LoveSex Aur Dhoka'', when there was problem with the Censor Board.

I am used to it," Banerjee told PTI.

"I pay the price for doing things that I want to do andsometimes if there is no trouble..I get worried. If things gowell, I get unsettled as I am used to trouble. So it is okfor me," he said.

After the super success of ''Love, Sex Aur Dhoka'', theacclaimed filmmaker is ready to make a political thrillercalled ''Shanghai''. The film is jointly being produced by PVRPictures and Dibakar Banerjee Productions (DBP).

"I am co-producing the film with PVR. It is a thrillerthat has politics as its main element. It is adapted from aGreek novel written by Vassilis Vassilikos. The novel, ''Z'' isbased on real life assassination of a dynamic politician thathappened in Greece in early 60s," the national award winningfilmmaker said.

About the film, Banerjee said, "This is not politicalsaga where there is revenge. The proper politics is howdecisions taken by politicians affect the lives of commonman." .

Usually one thinks politics is about those people who are clad in white clothes and stay in white painted houses..

family sagas, revenge, murder and all that. In this film weare showing how politics affects a common man, he said.

Apparently, the film has nothing to do with its title''Shanghai'', it will neither be shot in Shanghai nor it has todo anything with the politics of the city.

"It is because of the dreams in our hearts and mindsabout where we want to be. I would like to call it ''Shanghai''.

The film is shot in a nameless city in a nameless state,"Banerjee said.

Interestingly, for the first time two drasticallydifferent actors Abhay Deol and Emraan Hashmi will be sharingscreen space in this film.

"We have not finalised the female lead for the film.

There will be one heroine. The film will go on floors inApril-May and would release by the end of the year. But wehaven''t decided the exact date of the release," he said. PTIKKP DK DK
