As a partner at Illuminati Films with Saif Ali Khan,Dinesh Vijan has proved himself in the capacity of a producer,backing successful films such as Love Aaj Kal and Go Goa Gone. He is also the man with an ear for music and often credited for the chartbusting tracks of the films. But Vijan doesn’t wish to limit his role to production and marketing as far as making cinema is concerned. The 36-year-old has penned a romantic comedy,which he hopes to direct soon. Illuminati will be producing it and Vijan’s first choice for the lead actor is,of course,his partner and friend. “Dinesh will be narrating to me his script in a few days. We’ll be taking it forward from there,” said Khan.

Meanwhile,Vijan is tied up with the production of Homi Adajania’s Finding Fanny Fernandes,which,Khan says,is his partner’s initiative entirely. Illuminati is currently looking at producing films by Saket Chowdhary and Kunal Deshmukh while Khan might soon sign Mohit Suri’s next.
