In what seems to be an unusual casting Pankaj Kapur will be seen romancing Pooja Bhatt in the upcoming film ‘Abhi Nahi Toh Kabhi Nahi.’
“Our company wants to make films that remind the audience of fun movies like It’s Complicated and Cheaper By The Dozen. We thought of Pankaj Kapur for the film because he is like the Steve Martin of India when it comes to his looks and his body language.”
“In ANTKN, he will be seen romancing Pooja Bhatt. We were in discussions with her for a while as she was our first choice when we wanted to cast someone opposite Pankaj Kapur. And she really liked the story a lot,” said a source from Virendra K. Arora & Arjun N. Kapoor Productions, which is producing the film.
The film, which is fun, young and contemporary, will be helmed by debutant Jyothi Kaour Das, the former creative head of Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and the current creative head at Endemol India.
The film that is slated to take off in May in Mumbai, and later on in a hill station, also stars Lara Dutta, Kay Kay Menon, Sanjay Kapoor, Sanah Kapoor, Rajeev Khandelwal, Pooja Chopra, Himansh Kohli and others.
