Mumbai: Actor-turned producer Zayed Khan says his father Sanjay has revived his production house and will announce a new film project next month. "I will star in the film. Details about the project will be announced officially next month," Zayed told reporters.

To a question on why he chose to launch his own production company `Born Free Entertainment` when he could have been actively involved in his father`s company, Zayed said he and his father were temperamentally different in approaching issues. "But I will surely act in the film," he assured. The 30-year-old actor said when he told his father about his plans to turn producer, he did not sound too enthusiastic.

"He thought I was very casual and indicated that production was not a child`s play. Now that everything is on paper and our first film has gone on floors this week, he has given me his best wishes and that means a lot to me," Zayed said.

`Love, Breakups, Zindagi` starring Zayed and his co-producer Dia Mirza is written and directed by Sahil Sangha, their partner in the production house.

Sanjay Khan`s new project is yet untitled. Earlier, he has directed and produced films like `Chandi Sona`, `Abdullah`, `Kala Dhanda Goray Log` before shifting to television with shows like `The Sword of Tipu Sultan`, `The Great Maratha` and `Jai Hanuman`.

His acting profile includes movies like `Ek Phool Do Mali`, `Mela`, `Nagin`, `Inteqam` among others.
