Dibakar Banerjee, the director of Love Sex and Dhokha fame, is soon going to launch his new film. Dibakar is one of his kinds. The director is keen on signing Sonam Kapoor and Anil Kapoor in his new venture. Buzz is around that he also wants Abhay to act opposite Sonam.
We have seen the Jodi of Abhay and Sonam earlier in Aisha and it was a pleasure to watch them together or screen. If Dibakar will persuade papa Anil to act along with his beti Sonam then this would be for the first time we would be seeing the baap beti duo appearing together on screen.
The close sources of Dibakar reveal that he is actually planning a movie that will be inspired by an ancient book named ‘Z’. This book is written by a Greek author. Dibakar plans this film with a title ‘Shangahi’. The film is reportedly a political thriller. Work is in full swing in terms of script writing and finalizing. In the meantime Anil Kapoor has been approached by Dibakar who wishes to cast him in a negative character which Anil has liked tremendously as per our records.
Till date Anil has been blatantly denying to the producers straight away who approached him and wanted to cast the baap – beti Jodi together in their film. Anil doesn’t want to appear on screen together with his daughter and so he has avoided any such offer, though how good or bad it might have been.
But ‘Shanghai’ is an out an out Dibakar film which is ought to be different. Anil is impressed by the different style that this director adopts for making his films and for this reason he might confirm in affirmative about his plans to sign ‘Shanghai’.
Sources also reveal that Dibakar has spent quite a long time (read nine months) to give a final shape to the script and the film. Moreover unlike his other movies, this one is going to be an action packed thriller – genre new to Dibakar. Co-produced by PVR pictures, the film is reported to go on floors in March 2011.
As Dibakar has earlier worked with Abhay, there would be no issues signing him. But to get a nod of Sonam and Anil together might be a challenge for him. Sonam has recently been casted in Abaas Mustan’s ‘Players’ also where the audience will see a damn sexy look and hot look of Sonam sporting some shorts and gorgeous outfits. Sonam’s makeover is looked after by Anaita who is Fashion Director for Vogue India and has earlier done makeovers of Aishwarya and Deepika Padukone.
Let us hope that Sonam is a huge success in whatever avatar she appears in.
