When news about Rishi and Neetu Kapoor joining the cast of Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Besharm came out recently, it was assumed that the trio would play a family in the film as well.
However, the three actors who will make their first on-screen appearance as a family with this Abhinav Kashyap film will play unrelated characters.
A source close to the film reveals, “Abhinav narrated the script to Rishi and Neetu just a few days ago and the couple really liked the story. They are playing very important roles and not just making special appearances. Also, their characters have no connection to Ranbir’s, who is in the lead.”
Though the makers haven’t revealed any details on the film, it is likely to go on the floors by the end of this year.
“Abhinav is very particular about keeping the story from leaking out. The script is completely guarded and not a word is known to anyone. To have three huge talents from one family is a big achievement. And he’s making sure that everything works out fine.”
Besharm, which is produced by Reliance Entertainment, will be Abhinav’s next film after the Salman Khan blockbuster, Dabangg (2010).
Pallavi Sharda of Love Breakups Zindagi (2011) fame will be playing the leading lady.
