|Good news for the fans of Kareena Kapoor Khan! The vivacious actress is gearing up to start work in a new film by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. The movie will star Imran Khan in the lead.
The film is titled Gori Tere Pyaar Mein and will be directed by the young Punit Malhotra, whose first film I Hate Luv Storys, starring Imran Khan and Sonam Kapoor, was a hit. The director was adamant to take Imran Khan for his second film as well and thus signed him, but the hunt for the lead actress was on until Kareena Kapoor came on board.
Imran and Kareena have already worked in Shakun Batra’s Ek Mein Aur Ekk Tu, also a Dharma Production film, and indeed looked good together in EMAET. Though the casting of both the films is same, Punit Malhotra insists that the movies are poles apart.
“Apart from the fact that both films are love stories, there is nothing similar between them. We will be mostly shooting in a village and were looking for a quirky name. The title has been derived from a song and when Karan (Johar) made the suggestion, we loved it,” the director is quoted as saying.
Gori Tere Pyaar Mein expectedly will go on floors this March, and Kareena Kapoor has started her preparations. Of late, the actress is at her curvaceous best, but as per Punit, she wants to get a toned figure to look the part. Punit says that he loves Kareena Kapoor the way she is, and would have happily started shooting now but the actress is working on her body.
Can’t wait for the film!
