Imran Khan and Sonam Kapoor in Punit Malhotra’s next
Karan Johar’s protégé Punit Malhotra who made I Hate Luv Storys with Imran Khan and Sonam Kapoor, has planned his next film. In an interview, the young director said the script has been finalised and he is working on the casting. Unlike expected it isn’t a romantic comedy, but a social drama with two male leads. Thank god, he did not opt for an easier way and dish out another love story! Anyway, the director doesn’t reveal details of the casting. But if rumours are to be believed the lead pair of Malhotra’s debut film – Imran and Sonam – will be seen in his next in a different avatar. That should be a good thing for both the young stars. Imran has been overdoing it with romantic and youth-oriented genres. And after the Mausam debacle, Sonam desperately needs something to brighten up her filmograph. So, who better than the director who gave them a sureshot winner!

MAUSAM Quick Movie Review: Shahid Kapoor scores
The actor manages a standout performance, one that should overshadow his Jab We Met role
It may be the first time Pankaj Kapoor is directing a full-length Hindi film, but he gets it more right than many who are seasoned in the craft. Mausam, the new release of the week, starring Shahid Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor, is not the perfect film, but is indeed most impressive, with fine work from everyone involved – the director, the actors, the cinematographer, even the music director (though he did have a little help from history with Abhi na jao chod kar and Ajeeb dastaan hain yeh). The story spans time, as all the press releases have said, as it describes the love story between Ayaat, a Kashmiri refugee girl (Sonam Kapoor) and Harry, an air force pilot (Shahid Kapoor).
