After the maar dhaad dhamaka, FightClub –Members Only, Vicky Chopra is preparing for a romantic comedy now. Being produced by Rajeev Chudasama, Chopra’s second movie is called Season’sGreetings.
Sohail Khan, his first producer will be featuring in the movie that starts off on December 31 and is set abroad. Season’s Greetings will also star topline Tabu, Shreyas Talpade, Aashish Chowdhry and also the Sen sisters, Raima and Riya.
Declining to confirm the development, Chopra says, “It’s true I’m making this movie but I can’t confirm the cast until I’ve officially signed the stars. There are 10 lead characters and getting their combination dates is my biggest concern at the moment. It would be fair to reveal names on the basis of a verbal commitment.”
Ask him why he didn’t stick to action and he says he always wanted to experiment with a different genre.
Talk about the Tabu-Sohail Khan pairing and he answers, “There are six guys and four girls. The story revolves around these 10 characters and all that happens to them post New Year’s Eve.”
Chopra is on a location hunting spree.
“In about two weeks I will be able to give you more details,” he promises.
