Tusshar Kapoor will soon don the role of a producer with his maiden venture which will be co-produced by Shabinaa Khan. Incidentally, the latter made her debut as a producer with Rowdy Rathore. The yet-to-be-titled film will star Ajay Devgn and will go on floor early next August.
While not much has been revealed about the movie, the makers are in the process of finalising the script, having bought the official rights of the Tamil horror comedy Kanchana — one of the top grossers of 2011. he Hindi remake will be directed by Raghava Lawrence, who also helmed the original Tamil film.
Tusshar, who has always been a fan of the horror genre, says, “I have been waiting for the right story to come my way to make my debut in production. Kanchana is a great story and I am really happy to have Ajay on board. He is not only a good actor, who has excelled in both action and comedy, but is also a close friend.”
Shabinaa adds, “Horror comedy is a relatively new genre in Bollywood and I am looking forward to it.”
