Strong friendships are hard to come by in Bollywood, which is otherwise known to be fickle with everybody pursuing their own individual interests.
Interestingly, while Amitabh Bachchan is promoting friend and S Raamanathan's (one of the first directors he worked with in Bombay To Goa) Zamaanat, son Abhishek too is known to stand by his friends.
Junior B is once again teaming up with childhood buddy Goldie Behl for his next directorial venture. Abhishek had incidentally acted in Behl's Bas Itna Sa Khwab Hai.
Abhishek will be seen in buddy Goldie Behl's next venture
The last time we spoke to Shristhi Arya (Behl's sister), she had mentioned about their production house's plan of commencing her brother's film with Abhishek later this year.
According to sources, the final draft of the screenplay is ready and it's said to be absolutely fantastic.
Titled Drona, the film is a fast-paced thriller with the right proportion of ingredients like romance, action, comedy, great music and what have you.
Interestingly, the makers are considering shooting the film in China. Shrishti's husband, cinematographer Sameer Arya will shoot the film.
While Behl refused to comment saying that his sister would be in a better position to talk about it, Shrishti revealed a bit about the project.
"Yes, it's true that we'll be starting Goldie's next directorial venture this year. But we haven't confirmed the title yet, Drona is just the working title," she confirmed.
Unwilling to reveal any thing about the genre and content of the film she said, "It's too early to talk about it right now, but all I can say at this point is that it has everything."
On their plans to shoot in China, she said, "It's one of the places we're considering, so I can't say anything for sure right now. There are so many things to be worked out and procedures to complete before a location is finalized."
Refusing to talk any more about the film and the other cast, she said, "We haven't spoken to anyone else yet. But there will be two girls in the film."
Drona, as it's now called, will be made under the banner Rose Audio Visuals Pvt Ltd, whose last film was Bas Itna Sa Khwaab Hai which was five years ago.
