Ekta Kapoor teams up with cousin Abhishek Kapoor

And after Rock On!! and Kai Po Che, it’s going to be an intense love story for the director who is lovingly called Gattu

Ekta Kapoor might love to stick to bucketfuls of tears when dealing with the small screen, but she prefers to diversify her taste when it comes to movies. And so after working with directors like Dibakar Banerjee and Vishal Bhardwaj, now Ekta wants to rope in her cousin brother Abhishek Kapoor aka Gattu, the director of Rock On!! and Kai Po Che, for her next.

But is Gattu okay with that? A while ago, before leaving for Brazil, the director had watched his dear cousin sister’s movie, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, and had commented that Balaji’s standard of work had indeed risen. Ahem ahem. And he said that sometime in the future he would like to honour Ekta Kapoor.

And looks like the time has finally come! Feathered friends from the industry reveal the script for Gattu’s next is an intense love story. And once the script is finalised, casting will begin. “Things will speed up after his film (Kai Po Che) releases in January, as their plans are to start shooting some time mid next year,” Our sources chirp.

So will this brother-sister project create magic on the big screen? What do you think, readers?
