Sanjay Gupta’s Kaabil, produced by Rakesh Roshan and featuring Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam as a couple in love, and brothers Rohit and Ronit Roy as the baddies has gone on floors today. The revenge-love story will be filmed entirely in Mumbai over a four-month schedule.
“With my kids (son Shivansh and daughter Dalai) growing up, it’s not just about making a film but making a difference. Kaabil is for them,” the filmmaker informed Mirror, saying he had set certain benchmarks which he hoped to meet. The film will kick off with Hrithik and Yami. But they aren’t jumping into action directly.
“As much as I look forward to working with a new cast and crew, I will miss the regulars. The excitement is palpable as we embark on a new journey,” the writer-director adds, admitting that it feels like starting a new year at school with freshly covered books, new uniforms, shoes and lots of ambition. “I have mixed feelings of excitement, nervousness, joy, fear and introspection.”
Producer Rakesh Roshan informed that they have already recorded two songs and are extremely excited. “It is a challenging film for Hrithik and I am confident that Sanjay will do a great job. We have worked together on the script and dialogues and I will be there for the muhurat shot. After that I will leave it in Sanjay’s hands,” he says.
