Kareena Kapoor and Emraan Hashmi will team up for the first time in a romantic drama. The duo have finally signed a film together, which is yet to be titled.
The untitled romantic drama will be produced by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji as well as Karan Johar’s Dharma productions and will be directed by Akshay Roy.
Confirming the news, Karan said, “At Dharma, we believe in launching young talent.” While, Ekta refused to divulge much about the latest development. She only said, “The film is an urban take on love – it is quirky, edgy, dramatic and intense.”
Tanuj Garg, CEO of Balaji Motion Pictures tweeted, “For those asking, the untitled Balaji-Dharma romantic drama is taking off in September. Starring Emraan Hashmi & Kareena.”
Last year, buzz had it that Kareena Kapoor had turned down the offer of working with Emraan Hashmi.
A source had then said, “Kareena felt she wouldn’t be too comfortable working with Emraan, given his image. Although he has been on a golden run lately, his popularity as Bollywood’s Serial Kisser and the bad boy hero of small-budget films could have made Kareena refuse the film.”
But now, Bebo has finally said yes to working with the serial kisser Emraan and their pair definitely looks very fresh. The filmmakers are also on a look out for an actress in the supporting role.
This untitled project will hit screens on September 6, 2013.
