Actress Kangana Ranaut will be romancing National Award winning actor Irrfan Khan in ‘Divine Lovers’ to be directed by Sai Kabir of Revolver Rani fame.
Revolver Rani, which has been warmly received by critics, has managed to do a business of Rs 3 crore in two days of its release.
“Yes I’m doing a film called Divine Lovers with Kangana and Irrfan in the lead. It would be a complete contrast to Revolver Rani. It won’t be loud, aggressive, violent and splashy like RR. But again Divine Lovers would be about the Great Indian Dream,” said Sai Kabir.
Divine Lovers would be set in Mumbai and Aligarh. “It’d be set in the lower middle class and it would be also about the moral corruption of the middleclass,” he added.
Also on the anvil is the sequel to Revolver Rani. “I want to build my hero Alka Singh as a franchise. She’ll be my toy to tell many stories. I want her to do many things in the future including fight America and revive the Soviet Union.”
But before that there is a short film he’s directing this monsoon. “Again it’s about the Great Indian Dream. This obsession with the middle class comes from the fact that I was an assistant to Saeed Mirza and Kundan Shah for nine years. I am highly influenced by them. ButI feel my cinema needs to make money, so I can continue making the films that I want to.”
