Shahid Kapoor certainly has a lot to look forward to. Revelling under the success of Prabhu Dheva’s R…Rajkumar, the actor, has been signed by Vikas Bahl who is receiving accolades for the recently released Queen. The film, titled Shaandar is on destination weddings and is likely to take off in mid 2014. And now the actor is in talks with director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. for an action film. “Yes, we are in talks with Shahid for an action film, though he has not yet confirmed the project. Actually it is an action-intrigue film, meaning that it is a thriller-cum-action film. We have been wanting to work with Shahid ever since we saw his performance in Kaminey and are happy that he has liked our script,” said Nidimoru.
The director duo will also be doing a Telugu film with Mahesh Babu in the lead. “We are still discussing the dates with Mahesh and are not sure when the film will start. So once Shahid gives his confirmation, it will be decided which film will start first,” he added.
The director duo whose last venture Go Goa Gone had an above average run at the box-office are presently busy with Happy Ending starring Saif Ali Khan, Ileana D’Cruz and Preity Zinta.
Pankaj Saraswat, the man behind The Great Indian Laughter Challenge to play a comic villain in Revolver Rani
Saraswat is married to actress Tejaswani Kolhapure
Pankaj Saraswat the man who conceptualised The Great Indian Laughter Challenge show and discovered, trained and groomed comedians like Kapil Sharma, Bharati Singh is now doing a comic role himself in the upcoming Kangana Ranaut starrer, Revolver Rani.
Said Saraswat who plays one of the three brothers (others are Zakir Hussain and Kumud Mishra) in the film says, “There is a lot of black humour in the film. Zakir, Kumud and I are politicians who have run out of power. Inside our home we are always fighting, yelling and pretending to be very aggressive, but when we come face to face with Kangana Ranaut, who plays a rebel politician, we become meek,” said Saraswat who is married to actress-model Tejaswani Kolhapure and has earlier done films like Ab Tak Chappan and the yet to release Paanch.
