"We will start its shooting in early 2013. I am happy to play the lead in a historical film that will help to generate awareness about a ruler who contributed in the development of the country."

Imran Khan: worry about work, not money

Quality scripts are more important than box-office success, says Imran Khan. "Actors have to worry about their work and not money. Producers should be the ones worrying about money," he said in an interview. "There are films which have done massive business and nobody liked them. To me, it's important that people should remember my films 20 to 30 years down the line. Money will come and go." Khan's latest film, Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, is scheduled for release in early 2013. * IANS

Criminal Justice is headlined by James Gandolfini, who plays the family's attorney. * IANS
