Boney Kapoor is maha excited. Not over Wanted, his September blockbuster that got close to Rs 40 crore billing, but by his January release

I don't have to tell you the film's been in the making for a while, but Boney is confident it will be successful. "I can feel it in my bones," he said emphatically, "why should it not work, it's a good love story, it's got fantastic music." But what about the chemistry between Kareena and Shahid, I asked. "That's there," Boney declared, "besides, once the lights are off in the theatre, you forget whether they are a couple or not, and they become characters."

He's been a major player in Bollywood for 33 years now, and has always been big on ideas, and bigger on executing them. Which accounts for some 30 successes over the 80s, 90s and so far into the 2000s. Now he rattled off their names to me not in any order but as they came to mind. "There was Judaai in 1997 with Anil Kapoor and Sridevi which was a major hit but not a blockbuster," he began, "Company, Pukar in 2000 ' that won the National Award, and Loafer which was very successful, also Run in 2004... Abhishek Bachchan's cleansing began with this film, and Sirf Tum in which Sushmita Sen had the superhit song Dilbar... then No Entry, the biggest commercial success of 2005, and Wanted now, which I would rate as one of the Top 10 films of all time. It's still running! And it's a case study to the business that has evolved now. When people talk of a film raking in Rs 200 crore... that's a western concept to lure eyeballs. What you get in hand is what matters. I gave you the Indian box-office figures for Wanted. The overseas, satellite, home video/audio, branding rights are separate."

He's had some lemons at the box office as well, films like Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja in 1993 that I wasn't reminding him about. However, Boney said on his own, "I'm a complete hands-on filmmaker, I've been through it all, I've done so many films, and several for my brothers Anil and Sanjay too, that I've got to know the complete and detailed aspects of filmmaking and distribution. With today's invasion of corporates, the role of the producer is not underlined, there's just a mad rush to put the package together. That's why you've seen so many packages falling like nine pins! The control of the project is the engine... and it's important to have a producer driving it with passion. Yes, the corporates brought in discipline where the business of filmmaking is concerned, and they streamlined the revenue mode, but they took away the passion."

That Boney has passion, there is no doubt. "I've been through the highs and lows, I've had a fractured financial status, but even then... if I can still churn out a blockbuster, what magic might I have done with a complete back-up," he asked. The answer to that, perhaps, is in the films his production house BSK Network and Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. is making. I've already told you about Milenge Milenge. Then there's the Anees Bazmee directed It's My Life with Genelia, Harman Baweja and Nana Patekar, a remake of the successful South Indian film Bombraillu in Telugu and Santosh Subramaniam in Tamil. Isn't Hurman bad news in Bollywood, I asked. "Wasn't Amitabh bad news until Zanjeer," Boney shot back.

And he's got three more films in mind for which Boney Kapoor can already hear the cash tills at the box office ringing. They are all sequels. "I'm starting Mr. India 2 ' Be Positive, there's a strong possibility of Anil and Sridevi being the lead pair, plus a new, young couple, and somebody big playing the major and unusual role of the villain. Then I've got a fix for No Entry 2. And somebody suggested a good idea for Most Wanted. Everything depends on the viability of the projects and availability of the main crew. I'm a strong believer in the need for a good support system. My cast is always according to the need of the film. What works is not a package, but the product."

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO! January?! Crap! That's when Kites and Veer are releasing. CPD might be releasing around that time, too! Can't they just pick a random week in Neverland and never release it?!
