[RxPG] Mumbai, May 4 - Movie mogul J.P. Dutta might have suffered a serious setback with his lavish costume drama 'Umrao Jaan'. But you can't keep a giant down. He's now planning another film that would once again take him back in time.

'Yes,' concedes JP, 'I'm looking at the idea of reviving my dream project 'Aakhri Moghul'. It continues to haunt and intrigue me.'

Far from being bogged down by 'Umrao Jaan's' box office failure, JP is enthusiastically looking forward to making his new film.

'I've faced so many hardships in my life. My first film 'Sarhad' was shelved. My mother passed away when I was very young. Then I lost my brother. And yet I kept going. You think I'm going to be daunted by the failure of my films?'

JP initially planned to direct 'Aakhri Mughal' five years back as Abhishek Bachchan's launch film. The legendry Dilip Kumar was to play Bahadur Shah Zafar and Abhishek his son.

The film chronicles the life and times of the last Mughal emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar and his troubled relationship with his son.

'Of course, the film will have to be completely recast now,' said JP. 'The story still belongs to my friends from the Amrohi family. And they'd be more than happy to see me finally make a film that the great Kamal Amrohi was to make once.'

Will the film feature JP's blue-eyed boy Abhishek?

'Let's see...It all depends on his availability and the script's requirements. I know Abhishek will never say no to me. But I'd never force him to do a film. See, there're basically six saleable actors today. I wouldn't like to run after any of them.'
