When Abhishek Kapoor was asked about his cast in ‘Kai Po Che’, he insisted that he had enough chasing the stars and the image they come with. But seems like his mind changes like seasons in India as he will be casting Katrina Kaif as the female lead in his next.
Recently, the actress wsa approached for the role by the filmmaker and after a four-hour long meet, Katrina gave her nod. She seems to have loved the script and is already excited about the same.
The film is based on Charles Dickens classic – Great Expectations. Ekta Kapoor is going to be the producer of the film and the movie is said to be set in early Victorian England, the bildungsroman which summarizes the journey of an orphan named Pip.
A source said: “Abhishek was going through a lean phase after Rock On, but after the success of Kai Po Che things are looking good for him again. After all Katrina is one of the top stars.”
There were reports that Sushant Singh Rajput might play the orphan Philip Pirrip but later they were contrary reports to the same.
But Sushant’s friend again claimed saying, ““Sushant is indeed doing the film. He is sorting out the dates for his mentor. The shooting is scheduled to start this September.”
