Just like any other filmmaker in the world, Rohit Shetty also wants to tell as many unique stories to the audience as possible. Since he cannot direct all stories on his own, he has now teamed up with renowned choreographer-turned-filmmaker Farah Khan to do the job.
Yes, you heard that absolutely right! Rohit Shetty has just signed Farah Khan to direct the biggest action comedy film under his production house, Rohit Shetty Picturez. Farah last helmed the Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer Happy New Year (2014), which turned out to be a massive hit at the box-office upon its release.
Commenting on her maiden collaboration with Rohit Shetty, Farah said, “Sometimes the Universe just conspires to give you what you didn’t even imagine…Together with Rohit, Who I genuinely love as a brother, and whose work ethic I respect and share, I can only promise a ‘Mother of all Entertainers’! Can’t wait to say “Roll Camera” for this one!!”
“It’s a privilege for my production company to have Farah onboard to direct a film for us as she is extremely talented and hard working. It will definitely be a wonderful association. I can’t wait to start work with this extremely talented powerhouse. Looking forward,” shared excited Rohit.
Talking about Rohit’s next directorial venture, he has joined forces with superstar Akshay Kumar for a cop drama, titled Sooryavanshi. The film will mount the shooting floor as soon as the female lead in finalized.
Sooryavanshi is slated to buzz into cinemas in December this year.
