Imran Khan and Ekta Kapoor have proven their mettle time and again individually. The dynamic duo first came together for the much hyped OUATIMD but the camaraderie faded soon with much media speculation. Soon after the release of the movie, news of their relation going sour floated around also stating that they would not work together again.
As they say nothing is permanent. In their case all it took was one face to face encounter for differences to evaporate and now we hear that the two will be coming together for a film to be directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia tentatively titled Bhoole Se Naam Na Lo Pyaar Ka.
Their rift apparently ended when Ekta & Imran bumped into each other at a party. Says a source, “There were no fireworks or cold vibes. They saw each other and in minutes they were engrossed in a long conversation in a corner of the room.” A few days later they met again for tea and as old friendships revived; so did old projects.
While working for OUATIMD Imran Khan and Ekta Kapoor had discussed one of Tigmanshu Dhulia’s script which they were very passionate about. At that time Ekta was keen to make it and Imran wanted to do it with similar zeal. The script eventually came up in their conversation and they both realized that they were still equally enthusiastic about it and decided to revive it together.
Imran Khan confirmed the news, “I’m very glad that Ekta and I met face to face and cleared up our issues. I really wish we had done it sooner. Tigmanshu’s script is excellent, and it would be a shame for his film to suffer because of our disagreement. I’m really looking forward to the three of us working together.”
Ekta Kapoor shared his sentiments, “I am extremely fond of Imran Khan and thankfully we have ironed out our differences. When I heard Tigmanshu’s great script I instinctively knew that Imran was perfect for the character. He’ll do great justice to this role and we are so excited to commence this project.”
With most things in place for Tigmanshu now, he is yet to finalize the girl playing the main lead. Bhoole Se Naam Na Lo Pyaar Ko is supposed to go on floors this September 2015.
