Sanjay Gupta had recently announced his next project ‘Kaabil’ going on floors, on Twitter. The film that stars Hrithik Roshan and Yaami Gautam in lead roles, is the director’s first collaboration with the Roshans. Also Hrithik and Yaami are pairing up on screen for the first time. A picture from the first day shoot was shared by the team. Seen in the picture are sound designer Resul Pookutty, Sanjay Gupta, Palvi Jaswal, Rakesh Roshan, Sudeep Chatterjee, Sumit Basu and Akhilendra Mishra.
The film also stars brothers Rohit Roy and Ronit Roy in negative roles. Touted to be a revenge-love story, ‘Kaabil’ will be shot in Mumbai over a four-month schedule.
Sanjay Gupta’s last film ‘Jazbaa’ had received mixed response from the audience, but the director has set new benchmark for this film. An active tweeter, Sanjay had shared a series of tweets prior to the film’s schedule.
“We are barely 24 hours away from going on floors. #KAABIL shoot starts tomorrow.” [sic] the filmmaker had tweeted on Tuesday.
Sharing the team’s enthusiasm, Sanjay wrote, “#KAABIL Last minute preparations with actors & technicians. Excitement in cast n crew is palpable. A whole new journey about to begin.” [sic]
“#KAABIL Have set certain benchmarks for myself that I hope to achieve with this film. I always do but this time they’re really high. :-))),” [sic] he added.
Produced by Rakesh Roshan, the film is slated to release on January 26, 2017.
