Farhan and Ritesh announce Excel’s line-up

Contrary to rumours, all is well at Excel Entertainment between Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. While Excel already has Talaash up for release in November, the production house is putting out not one but six films on floors in the next ten months with almost Rs. 300 crores being invested in these projects.

Zoya is working on the script of her next after ZNMD and the film will go on floors by end of December 2012. Reema Kagti too is planning her next film after Talaash which will be jointly written by Zoya and her.

Farhan’s next directorial venture after Don 2 would go on floors in early 2013 and the actor-director plans to translate the idea he has in mind into a script during breaks from the shoot of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. Then there is Rock On 2, script of which Abhishek Kapoor has completed, and has started working on its screenplay along with Pubali who wrote Rock On. Besides, this there is also a story idea given by Abhinay Deo of Delhi Belly fame which has got Farhan and Ritesh’s approval. Apparently, this film, which is about two buddies, will have two stars in the lead.

Last but not the least is a script by a new writer-director which has been approved. However, Farhan and Ritesh are keeping the new guy under wraps and plan to make an official announcement soon.

Hope this puts all the rumour mongers to rest.
