Rock On!! director Abhishek Kapoor, who was on a break, thanks to TV show, Khatron Ke Khiladi X 3 (KKK) on Colors, is back to the grind. “That’s the benefit of not having a salaried job. I can take time off whenever I want,” he says.
Buzz is that Kapoor’s next film will be for actor actor Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment. “If all goes well, the film should start early next year,” says Kapoor.
It is also rumoured that he will direct a film for cousin sister Ekta Kapoor’s company, Alt Entertainment. “I watched Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai (produced by Ekta), and it has upped the standard of work I want to put in for a film I make for Ekta. I cannot disappoint my sister because I love her too dearly.”
Abhishek connected with Ekta when he found out that she had fractured her wrist recently. “Ekta was in Dubai when we spoke. She was said she was fine. She is mighty kicked about my show (KKK). She wanted to know the stunts I was to perform on the show. She said, ‘Gattu bhaiyya, you have to make me proud’” Abhishek says. He adds that he won’t mind doing more shows. “Today, if I’m offered a role that catches my fancy, I’ll do it. Ditto for a reality show.”
