At least that’s what Shagufta Rafiq, the writer of Dhoka and Murder 2, is hoping for!
Nowadays we see Randeep Hooda seducing the sizzling Sunny Leone in Jism 2 and Bipasha Basu trying to ward off a naughty spirit in Raaz 3. So pairing the two up wouldn’t be such a bad idea, right? Looks like Shagufta Rafiq must have thought on the same lines too.
After quitting her job as a bar dancer, Rafiq started writing screenplays for Vishesh Films. But after working on scripts for Dhoka, Murder 2 and Woh Lamhe, now the writer wants to don the director’s hat. “I wanted to get into direction for three years now. When you write screenplays, you write about visuals and other details. And when you see someone else directing your work, you tend to feel that you could have done it better,” she confessed in an interview.
And revealing juicy bits about her debut movie she said, “It will be a thriller and I am just waiting to finalise the cast and the production house. As soon as that is done, I will surely make the official announcement. Nothing has been finalised yet, but I would like to have Bipasha and Randeep to act in my film.” Ahem ahem. While all’s well with you donning the director’s hat, Shagufta, we are a bit apprehensive about the Bipasha-Randeep pairing.
‘Coz if we remember right, Hooda almost ran his car over our Bong beauty while the latter was shooting with her then-beau John Abraham for Goal in Karjat. Yup, we know it was a long time ago. But has time healed the soured relationship between Randeep and Bips? Guess only Rafiq’s debut movie will tell.
