Deepti Naval says her directorial venture Do Paise Ki Dhoop, Chaar Aane Ki Baarish, which is expected to hit screens next year, will be a homage to the late Dev Anand.
The film, now in its post-production stage, is about the intertwining lives of an ageing prostitute (Manisha Koirala), her wheelchair-bound child (Naval's nephew Sanaj) and a struggling songwriter (Rajit Kapur).
According to Naval, Do Paise Ki Dhoop, Chaar Aane Ki Baarish explores the complexity of relationships in today's society, where, above all, the human bond survives.
"I wanted to show my film to Dev saab. I told him about it. But as he was busy with his film Chargesheet, he could not see it. Now as homage, I want to dedicate my film to him," the versatile actress, who has just come out with her book of short stories The Mad Tibetan: Stories From Then and Now, told PTI.
She said there has been a slight delay in the release of her film and hoped that it will hit the screens next year.
She is also excited about acting with Farooque Shaikh in Listen Amaya.
"He has been a wonderful co-star and it's great to have another opportunity to work with him," says the actress who made her debut in Ek Baar Phir (1979) and has acted in more than 60 films since then.
