It has already been reported that Shoojit Sircar who gave us Vicky Donor and Madras Cafe will be producing a film starring Amit Sadh and Taapsee Pannu as the leading pair. The film was to be helmed by ad film-maker Amit Roy earlier but now Aditya Datt, who had helmed the thriller Table No 21, will be directing it. “The film is a romantic comedy and we will start shooting by the end of October,” said Sadh.
This will be the actor’s second film after his successful debut in Abhishek Kapoor’s Kai Po Che. Sadh is also doing a political thriller called 10 Janpath directed by Siddharth Sawant. Paresh Rawal will be his co-star in the film. “Both the films will release next year,” said the actor who has been doing workshops and readings to prepare for his characters.
B.A Pass director’s next, with Rajkumar
Director Ajay Bahl, whose film B.A. Pass received critical acclaim, is now ready to start his next. The film will star Kai Po Che actor Rajkumar in the lead, and will be produced by Vishesh Films, with Fox Star Studios backing the project. The director confirms the news, and adds, “Yes, I’m doing a film with Rajkumar. All I can say is that it’s a thriller, and a human-drama. It is slated to go on floors in early November.” Citing confidentiality contract, the director didn’t divulge anything else about the project. And while Rajkumar is confirmed for the film, no actress has been zeroed in on, as yet. But according to Bahl, an actress will be finalised in the next two weeks, post which an announcement will be made. Rajkumar will also be seen in Hansal Mehta’s Shahid, which is the story of the slain human activist lawyer.
