Rohan Sippy, who last directed Dum Maaro Dum, is now all geared up to commence his next film in July. Presented by T-series and Ramesh Sippy Entertainment Pvt Ltd., the film is a buddy -comedy. The yet untitled film will mark Bhushan Kumar and Ramesh Sippy’s first joint venture as co- producers.
For the first time, Rohan won’t have Abhishek Bachchan as the lead face for his film unlike his previous directorial ventures Kuch Naa Kaho, Bluffmaster and Dum Maaro Dum. Abhishek, who loved the script but has other work commitments, will be appearing in the film in a cameo. Rohan further adds, “He is my good-luck charm and he is doing a cameo. We are trying to shoot before he starts shooting for his upcoming action flick.”
The film will see actors Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunal Roy Kapoor sharing the screen space for the first time. Earlier, Rohan had worked with Kunal Roy Kapoor as the producer when Kunal had directed political satire The President Is Coming few years ago.
Says Rohan, “I realized that Kunal has great potential as an actor and that’s why we got him on board as well. Ayushmann and Kunal are new age actors who have a definite connect with today’s audience.”
Speaking on association with Bhushan Kumar, Rohan says, “We have done many films with Bhushan Kumar and he is an extremely passionate producer. It is amazing to see the kind of clout he enjoys in the industry, but in spite of that, he has the passion to make those kinds of films that he believes in.”
Bhushan Kumar too is quite content to work with Sippy Junior. Says Kumar, “Rohan is one director who has a great sense of music. The experience of working on Dum Maaro Dum with him was great. And even now, he has given me a lot of freedom to get involved in the music of this film.”
Well, one is eagerly looking forward to watching the talented young duo – Ayushmann and Kunal – weave their magic onscreen.
