Mumbai, Nov 28, 2012, (IANS):

Himesh Reshammiya is not only co-producing "Khiladi 786", but even has a role in the movie.

"My role is a surprise. This is the first time I am playing the role of a Gujarati boy, Mansukh Desai. And the story is mine. The music is mine. This is my first joint venture with Akshay (Kumar)," said Himesh.

Directed by Ashish R.Mohan, the action-comedy features Akshay opposite Asin Thottumkal.

"I have been composing music for Akshay's films since a long time. I feel this is a 'Khiladi' film and I think he is the real hero in this film, while the rest are extras," Himesh added.

India has limited space for short films: KJo


Filmmaker Karan Johar acknowledges the popularity of shorts films across the globe, and understands that there is currently only limited space for the format in Indian cinema.

"Short films are made world over and celebrated world over. India has a very limited space for short films. But I am glad it is being propagated. Sometimes even a 15 to 20 minute film can leave a lasting impact," Karan said here.

After 18 years in the business of cinema, the 40-year-old has ventured into a short film for the first time. He did it for Chivas Studio and roped in Shakun Batra to direct the project, titled "Strangers In The Night".

The format of short films is as effective as a feature film, says Karan.

"The film is equally glamorous. This is the first time we have produced and directed a short film. I thought Shakun Batra would be the right choice. He is very crisp in his narrative and very stylish in his approach to cinema. He was a perfect choice," said Karan.

Batra earlier directed Karan's production "Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu".
