Rohan Sippy is all set to begin the production of his next film, a comedy, in July. The yet untitled film co-produced by Bhushan Kumar, stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunal Roy Kapoor. Abhishek Bachchan will be seen in a cameo. This will also be the first time that Bhushan Kumar and Ramesh Sippy join hands to co-produce a film.
As reported ‘Next move’ (Hitlist, May 31) Rohan took on Ayushmann after seeing his performance in Vicky Donor. On the other hand, Rohan had worked with Kunal Roy Kapoor as he directed a film for him earlier. Says Rohan, “I realised that Kunal has great potential as an actor and that’s why we got him on board as well. Ayushmann and Kunal are new age actors who have a definite connect with today’s audience.”
He further adds, “We have done many films with Bhushan Kumar and he is an extremely passionate producer. It is amazing to see the kind of clout he enjoys in the industry, but in spite of that, he has the passion to make those kinds of films that he believes in.” Speaking about Abhishek’s cameo Rohan says, “He is my goodluck charm and he is doing a cameo. We are trying to shoot before he starts shooting for his upcoming action flick.”
Meanwhile, Bhushan Kumar stresses that he has always wanted to work with people who have a good sense of music and Rohan Sippy is surely one of them. Bhushan says, “Rohan is one director who has a great sense of music. The experience of working on Dum Maro Dum with him was great. And even now, he has given me a lot of freedom to get involved in the music of this film.”
