Actress Kareena Kapoor, who is rumoured to have been roped in to play writer Amrita Pritam in a biopic on legendary Urdu poet Sahir Ludhianvi, says she is still reading the script of the project.
Producer Ashi Dua, who is looking forward to the release of Bombay Talkies, which boasts of a star cast like like Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Rani Mukerji, says she will not use the star power to promote the film.
Actor Saif Ali Khan hosted a screening of his new film Kaalakaandi at a preview theatre on Tuesday night. Apart from Saif and his wife Kareena Kapoor Khan, we spotted, Soha Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu, Kunal Roy Kapoor, Deepak Dobriyal, director Akshat Verma, producer Ashi Dua, Sobhita Dhulipala, Isha Talwar, and a few other friends of the cast from the film fraternity.â
At an event of his upcoming film Kaalakaandi, Saif Ali Khan was asked if he is embarrassed by any song that he has shot in the past. He did name one with an elaborate explanation of it. His next film Kaalakaandi is directed by Akshat Verma, produced by Ashi Dua; it releases on January 12.
Actress Priyanka Chopra will once again play Irrfan Khan's onscreen love interest in the biopic based on the life of poet writer Sahir Ludhianvi. Priyanka will reportedly play literary giant Amrita Pritam who was Mr Ludhianvi's love interest in director Ashi Dua's project. They played a romantic pair almost on the same lines in Saath Khoon Maaf (2011) where Irrfan played a Kashmiri Poet who marries Priyanka's character.
