I am dreaming all the time to return to India: MF Husain


94-year-old Husain -- who has earlier made three films -- 'Through the Eyes of a Painter' (1967), 'Gaja Gamini' (with his muse Madhuri Dixit in the lead) and 'Meenaxi: A Tale of Three Cities' (with Tabu) -- said that the film, a comedy, was yet to be titled.

The renowned painter was at the Nehru Centre last evening to participate in a discussion titled Cinema: Art in Motion, M F Husain in Conversation with Behroze Gandhy.

Husain who now lives in Dubai and London, said "I am dreaming all the time to return to India.

"I never said I will not go back. I need a little more time. There is no ban on my return. The Supreme Court has cleared the case. I can go back anytime," he added.

In his conversation with Ms Behroze Gandhy, Husain was all praise for popular Bollywood cinemas.

"Bollywood has evolved its own unique style and in India cricket and cinema entertain millions of people," he said.

Pandharpur-born Husain said right from beginning he wanted to make films but had to wait for over 50 years owing to lack of finances
