Saif-Ileana romcom to roll in June
Go Goa Gone, directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. will start shooting for Saif Ali Khan’s next home production in June.
Krishna told IANS, "It's a romantic-comedy and we will start rolling the film as soon as Go Goa Gone releases. Most probably the film will go on the floors in June. The film is yet untitled and the entire film will be shot in US. I can't reveal much about the film as it is in its initial stage."
Saif, who will also star in the film, will be playing an urban, comic role similar to the characters he played in Dil Chahta Hai, Hum Tum and Salaam Namaste.
"We have cast Saif because he is known for his comic timing. He is funny and I would like to see Saif in funny roles rather than in serious characters. Saif will be seen playing a hilarious character in the romantic comedy. The subject is very edgy and funny," said Krishna.
When asked were they contemplating with the idea of casting Saif's real life partner Kareena Kapoor in the film, he said: "Well, Kareena is very busy, so getting her dates can be an issue. I can't say Kareena was our first choice. I personally like her and would like to see her in my next film."
The film’s leading lady is not Saif’s Mrs. though – South hottie Ileana D’Cruz will be paired opposite the nawab for the first time instead.
Nidimoru and Krishna's past credits include films like 99, and Shor In The City. Go Goa Gone releases on 10 May 2013.
