Filmmaker Vijay Singh is all set to create a fresh Jodi in the film industry. This is something none has been able to do in the Hindi film industry so far. He’s in talks with the Bollywood badshah Shahrukh Khan for his next project, an 18th century historical love story between an Awadh king and a British girl.
In the past, Singh has shot critically acclaimed feature films like Jaya Ganga and One Dollar Curry. According to him, Shahrukh will perfectly fit the role of Nawab Naseeruddin Haidar in his third film, The Opium Symphony, based on his book Whirlpool of Shadows.
“I had met Shah Rukh regarding the movie and he had liked the idea. I am planning to approach him again for the role of the Nawab. He ruled Awadh from 1826-36 and fell in love with a British girl but their love did not suit the interest of opium traders at that time,” Singh said in an interview.
Singh has his eye on Katrina Kaif to play the British girl.
“Earlier I was planning to take a Hollywood starlet opposite him for the role of the British girl but I might talk to Katrina Kaif. I have been told she is British and is a fine actress,” Singh said.
Well, hope this works out. Its gonna be a fantastic Jodi
