When quizzed about the untitled film, Santoshi said: “It’s in the same creative space as my ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani’. Abhay and Sonam would be captured in a comedy of errors like Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, though this is a completely different script and has no bearing on ‘Ajab Prem…’”
However, it is being said that Santoshi had planned the film as a follow-up to “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani” with Ranbir and Katrina.
As for the once-warring couple, a source said: “Anil Kapoor and Santoshi go back a long way to Santoshi’s ‘Lajja’. Anil was supposed to do ‘Power’ with Santoshi in 2011. That project didn’t take off. It was he who suggested to Santoshi that he do a film with Sonam.”
Abhay came into the project through Santoshi’s long association with the Deols. This will be Abhay-Sonam’s second film together post “Aisha”.
The cinematography would be in the hands of ace-cameraman Ravi K. Chandran.
Santoshi would be producing the film.
