Bhansali's 'Guzaarish' is supposedly based on Christopher Nolan's Superhit movie "The Prestige." The story is said to portray an incident of mercy killing. UTV is Bhansali's 50% partner in this project. The Greek God Hrithik and gorgeous Aish have been paired twice before, first in 'Dhoom 2' and second in 'Jodhaa Akbar.' Both movies have proven to be huge hits, and Hrithik-Aish chemistry has been sizzling.
After the unfortunate fate of Saawariya, the talented director is in an urgent need of a hit movie. Hrithik-Aish magic has worked twice; Bhansali is keeping his fingers crossed for the magic to repeat the third time.
Since Hrithik is busy with his home production Kites, the shooting is expected to start by the end of 2009.
