Kai Po Che‘s director Abhishek Kapoor’s next venture Fitoor has been in the news for pairing Aditya Roy Kapur and Katrina Kaif
Abhishek Kapoor’s Fitoor might be releasing in 2015 but it had already started making news. First we heard that the fresh coupling of Aditya Roy Kapur and Katrina Kaif is to be seen in this film. Then we heard about the project being shelved. But now we hear that Rekha is all geared up to join the star cast of this film which is still afloat.
Fitoor is yet another film adaptation of a novel, Charles Dickens’, Great Expectations. The movie delves into the complex relationship between a young Kashmiri boy named Noor (Aditya); his muse Firdaus (Katrina) and the temperamental Begum (Rekha).
Abhishek Kapoor is presenting his directorial venture with UTV Motion Pictures and Disney India’s Managing Director Siddharth Roy Kapur said, “Abhishek is an exceptional filmmaker and we are very pleased to take our association with him forward, after the incredible success of Kai Po Che last year. We believe his cinematic vision for the Dickens classic, Great Expectations, along with this fantastic cast we’ve put together, will be something to look forward to.”
Will Abhishek do justice to Dickens’ classic or will he fail to affect us like Dickens could? Only time will tell.
