Anil Kapoor to share screen with Shahid Kapoor

Anil Kapoor to share screen with Shahid Kapoor

After 'Pukar' and 'Lajja', Anil Kapoor has joined hands with filmmaker Raj Kumar Santoshi again. Not only will he play the lead in the movie, Anil will also associate with the project as a producer.

News is that Santoshi is coming up with a film that will be an adaptation of Asghar Wajahat's play 'Jis Lahore Nahin Dekhiya Woh Jamiya Nahin'. While things are still getting finalized, grapevines have it that there will be yet another Kapoor on board. No, not Anil's beti Sonam - but her 'Mausam' co-star, Shahid Kapoor. Talks are that if things fall in place then Sasha will play another lead in the untitled project.

 Anil Kapoor was greatly impressed with Shahid during the 'Mausam' days. Besides, he has high regards for Shahid's father, actor-director Pankaj Kapur. So looks like these things helped to bring the actors together for this new venture

The new year also means the awards season will soon begin. And given the multitude of Bollywood legends who passed away this year, one can expect to see a plethora of tributes being paid to the departed greats. And while the obvious choice to pay a tribute to Shammi Kapoor would have been his grand nephew, Ranbir, it appears that it would be Shahid Kapoor who will be grooving to Shammi’s tunes now.

“Both Shahid and Ranbir are scheduled to perform at the awards, although for separate acts. While Shahid is working on the tribute to Shammi Kapoor, Ranbir is yet to confirm the details of his act,” says a spokesperson for the channel organising the awards show.

In what is a double whammy for Shahid, he could be paying a tribute to Dev Anand as well at another awards soiree. “It’s a privilege to pay homage to such greats like Dev saab and Shammiji. They are both made invaluable contributions to Indian cinema, and if I can even recreate a fraction of their magic, I’d consider it an accomplishment,” gushed Shahid.

Shahid Sonam KApoor once again?

Punit Malhotra, who was chalking out plans for his next venture, was all geared up to repeat the formula which worked for his directorial debut, I Hate Luv Storys. However, we hear that his plans to cast Sonam Kapoor opposite Imran Khan for the Karan Johar production are not likely to materialise. A friend of the director's revealed to Mumbai Mirror that Malhotra is back to square one as far as casting is concerned, as Imran has opted out. 

According to the director's friend, Imran wants to focus on his other films, as the dates for Malhotra's project would come into conflict with his other commitments. The director's friend explained, "After the success of I Hate Luv Storys, Punit was extremely keen to cast Imran and Sonam, as he is very close to them. Punit had spoken about the film to the media. In fact, Dharma Productions were about to announce the film. But then, Imran informed Punit and Karan that he would not be able to do the film, citing date issues. However, Punit was very understanding about Imran's decision."

Imran's decision to pull out, however, has come as a major surprise to many in the industry, since I Hate Luv Storys was Imran's first major hit after his debut film Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. While the actor has opted out of this project, Imran's friend told Mumbai Mirror, "Despite these developments, Imran and Punit are scheduled to do a film together, but later. Imran is currently dedicating his time to Vishal Bharadwaj's film Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, which goes on floors very soon."

Apparently, Shahid Kapoor is being considered to replace Imran in the film. "If all goes well, this will be Shahid's first film with Dharma Productions, after he had left Kaal at the last minute," added Malhotra's friend.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra To Chose Between Ranbir And Shahid For His Next

Ranbir Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor are being considered to star in Vidhu Vinod Chopra's next film called 'Chithiyaan'. However, only one of them will end it up grabbing the lead role in Vidhu's film.

The film is going to be a love triangle and Sharman Joshi has already been finalized as a second lead of the film.

If sources are to be believed then Chopra met Ranbir in Los Angeles for the narration of the script, but Shahid Kapoor has been seen at Vidhu's office often in the near past and he is in talks for the same role.

A source close to the filmmaker says, "The casting is still in process. It's a two-hero film. Sharman Joshi is definitely playing one of the two heroes. Chopra decided to sign him after watching the rushes of Ferrai Ki Sawaari. While he is very keen on casting Ranbir and has met him a few times, Shahid who is very eager to work with the producer of the Munnabhai series and 3 Idiots has been sending him feelers."

When contacted, the spokesperson of Chopra's production company confirmed the reports saying, "The talks are on with both the Kapoor lads. We will find out soon who bags the role."

Shahid Kapoor in, Kareena Kapoor out?

Shahid Kapoor in, Kareena Kapoor out?

Buzz is that Shahid Kapoor will play the second male lead in the sequel of 'Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai' while Kareena Kapoor is no more a part of the project.

The only casting certain about Ekta Kapoor's sequel to Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai is Akshay Kumar. While other members of the cast have to be finalized, there is a strong buzz that Kareena Kapoor who has earlier touted to be the female lead of the film will no longer be a part of the project. And Kareena Kapoor's ex-love Shahid Kapoor might just join the cast as the second male lead.

However Kareena's exit has got nothing to do with Shahid Kapoor being considered for the film. A source close to the film reveals, " Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai 2 is not a solo-hero project but has two male leads like the first part. While Akshay Kumar is confirmed to play the character loosely modeled on the lines of underworld gangster Dawood Ibrahim, there is a second male lead who challenges Akshay in the film". Names like Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh were being considered for the part though there's more probability of the former signing the dotted lines.

For the female lead however, Kareena Kapoor's name never surfaced after the initial hoopla. "Also there are two female leads in the film", adds the source but Bebo's chance of being any one of them seems bleak. Director Milan Luthria has also put speculations to rest that he is casting his Dirty Picture heroine Vidya Balan as the second female lead citing the reason that the character doesn't suit her.
