|A love story set in the US and exploring a terrorism angle. Sounds familiar? We saw it in director Kabir Khan’s New York. Incidentally, director Rensil D’Silva’s upcoming film Kurbaan is based on a similar theme. But it’s very different from ‘New York’, says the movie’s leading man Saif Ali Khan, who also disclosed at a press conference in Dubai that he was offered a role in ‘New York’.
“I had gone through the script of New York since I was offered a role in the film. I have not seen the film except for the songs and I think it has a very young storyline with college guys partying at pubs and having fun on the campus. On the contrary Kurbaan is very mature,” Saif told mediapersons.
While in ‘New York’, John Abraham, Katrina Kaif and Neil Nitin Mukesh played students at an American university, in ‘Kurbaan’ Saif and Bebo play professors at Delhi University. Their love story begins and develops in Delhi but culminates in New York.
Like her beau, Kareena too feels the movie will have the viewers on the edge of their seats.
“The film is gritty, gripping and cutting edge,” she said.
The duo is equally impressed by the movie’s bold posters which have created quite a sensation.
Saif excitedly admitted that he’s got a good feedback for the posters, while Kareena said the posters capture the emotional and raw intensity of the film.
‘Kurbaan’ is set for release on November 20. The film also stars Vivek Oberoi, Dia Mirza, Om Puri and Kiron Kher.
