After a long gap of 10 years, National-Award winning filmmaker Govind Nihalani will be back next year with a 3D animation film for kids. "Now I have turned to animation and will be back after a long time. My film 'Kamlu Happy Happy' is now complete and should get released early next year," Nihalani said. The 72-year-old said the film is about a baby camel called 'Kamlu' living in a Rajasthan desert. "He wants to fly but is told that it is impossible for camels to fly. I have written this folk tale type of a story on his dream to do the impossible," Nihalani who is also producing the film said. It was way back in 2004 that he made his last film - 'Dev', which featured Amitabh Bachchan. Winner of six National Film Awards, he is best known for making parallel films like 'Ardh Satya', 'Drohkaal', 'Hazaar Chaurasi Ki Maa' and 'Aakrosh'.
