nagya's next: cricket for food

After the wonder of teen deewarein and the less-than-satisfying Hyderabad Blues 2: Rearranged Marriage, NK was rumoured to be working on a food film called Tandoor. It would have been an interesting entry into a genre that doesn't seem to have any takers in India (the genre of the food film). Apparently, things didn't work out with the producer, and Nagesh shifted tracks to make his next venture a cricket movie called Iqbal: The Rampur Express (blame producer Subhash Ghai -- gulp!! -- for that suffix). Naseeruddin Shah returns to NK's fold, and the cast also apparently includes Girish Karnad, Kitu Gidwani, and marks the "full-fledged cinematic début" (aka another special appearance a la Mujhse Shaadi Karogi) of Kapil Dev. Sukhwinder Singh does the honours for the soundtrack.
