After wrapping up zombie comedy Go Goa Gone, director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK will start shooting with Saif Ali Khan and Ileana D’Cruz for a romantic comedy in June.
“It’s a romantic-comedy and we will start rolling the film as soon as Go Goa Gone releases. Most probably the film will go on the floors in June. It is yet untitled and the entire film will be shot in the US. I can’t reveal much about it at present as it is in its initial stage,” says Krishna.
Ileana, who has done several Telugu movies, made her debut in Bollywood last year with Anurag Basu’s critically and commercially successful film, Barfi!. Nidimoru and Krishna are known for their films, including 99 and Shor In The City. Their Go Goa Gone will come out May 10.
Saif, known for his comic timing in films like Dil Chahta Hai, Hum Tum and Salaam Namaste, will be seen playing a funny character in the film. “We have cast Saif because he is known for his comic timing. His role will be hilarious because the subject is very edgy and funny,” said Krishna.
Asked if the makers are thinking of casting Saif’s better half Kareena Kapoor also in the film, he said, “Kareena is very busy, so getting her dates can be an issue. I can’t say Kareena was our first choice. I personally like her and would like to see her in my next film.”
