Kai Po Che’s rave reviews get Abhishek Kapoor Disney UTV’s new film!

It’s a real pleasure to extend this bond with the company, says Kapoor

Buoyed by the response to Kai Po Che!, movie production banner Disney UTV has signed director Abhishek Kapoor to helm another film for the company. The deal was signed Friday, February 23, when Kai Po Che!, based on Chetan Bhagat’s book The 3 Mistakes of My Life, hit the screens.

“With Kai Po Che!, Abhishek has managed to marry commercial success with critical acclaim seamlessly. We are thrilled to be collaborating with him on another film and look forward to many more in the future,” Siddharth Roy Kapur, Managing Director – Studios, Disney UTV, said in a statement. “He is an incredibly gifted filmmaker. His clarity of vision as a storyteller and his ability to faithfully translate that vision from script to celluloid is remarkable,” added Kapur.

Kai Po Che!, starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh and Raj Kumar Yadav in key roles, is Abhishek’s third film as a director. In the past, he helmed Aryan and the successful Rock On!!.

His latest film had a 65 percent opening in morning shows across the country Friday, and the numbers are said to have swelled to 80 to 100 percent across India by Friday evening.

Abhishek is excited to team up with UTV Motion Pictures again. “Kai Po Che! has been instrumental in forming an extremely wonderful and rewarding creative association. A great meeting of minds, with a shared vision, ethic and comfort zone, where artistic sensibilities complemented the box office, to create fresh dynamic talent and harnessing pathbreaking cinematic content.

“It is only natural, and a real pleasure to extend this bond going forward. Kai Po Che! has been a satisfying and successful experience, and true to its spirit, UTV and I are taking the next step (a major leap, in fact) to partnering together for love of the craft and cementing our relationship,” said Abhishek.
