'Movie not about Ravi Shankar'

KOLKATA: Actor-filmmaker Dev Anand said on Thursday his upcoming film Song of Life was not the story of sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar or his family and asserted that he would finalise the star cast within a month. "It is not their family story. And it should not be. They must realise that I am not interested in the nitty-gritty of their life," he said over phone from Mumbai. He pointed out that the basic storyline was somewhere close to Pandit Shankar's life in that it had a musician father, an American wife and a daughter born out of wedlock. — PTI
