After a film like Love Sex Aur Dhokha, what’s next for director Dibakar Banerjee? The buzz has it that the maverick director is interested in signing Sonam Kapoor with Abhay Deol and is also in talks with Anil Kapoor to play a crucial role in his next film. If this happens, then the father-daughter duo will come together for the first time on big screen.
From what we learn, Dibakar is planning a film on an old book titled 'Z', written by a Greek author. The film is going to be a political thriller with the title Shanghai. Though the script is still being worked upon, Anil has apparently been approached for a negative character which he has liked immensely. So far Anil has avoided working with Sonam, even though many producers want them to portray father and daughter in their films. But a Dibakar Banerjee film is different. Anil seems to be highly impressed with what he has heard.
It’s learnt that Dibakar has spent nine months to shape up this film and unlike his other projects, this movie will have violence. This movie is going to be co-produced by PVR Pictures and will go on floors by March 2011. Dibakar has already worked with Abhay, so signing him will not be a big deal.
Let’s wait and watch if Sonam comes into the picture or not.
