Director Abhishek Kapoor, who launched Sushant Singh Rajput into movies with his critically and commercially successful film ‘Kai Po Che!’ (2013), is currently busy with the shooting of his forthcoming film ‘Kedarnath’ with his favourite actor.
The project has been the talk of the town ever since it was announced a couple of months back. It’s based on the catastrophic floods of Uttarakhand which claimed many lives in 2013. When the filmmaker was asked that how did he come about making this film, he said, “In my house, spirituality has been a guiding principle. I am a big believer of Shivji and the cosmic forces that oversee us.
“The incident of the floods in 2013 also could not leave my mind, due to the stories that came out of it – devastating and remarkable in equal measure. I had to go ahead and develop a film set against that backdrop. I believe it is one of the most important stories I can tell for modern India,” he added.
Aside from its storyline, the film also remains in the news because of its lead pair. After paving the way for Sushant Singh Rajput in Bollywood, Kapoor is now launching Sara Ali Khan in films. Sara is the daughter of actors Saif Ali Khan and Sara Ali Khan. She is paired opposite Sushant in ‘Kedarnath’.
Even before mounting the shooting floor, ‘Kedarnath’ is on everybody’s mind because of Sara and Sushant. We are yet to see the reel-life chemistry of the duo, but as far as their real-life chemistry is concerned, it is terrific and never fails to catch eyeballs.
Produced by T-Series, Balaji Motion Pictures, and KriArj Entertainment, ‘Kedarnath’ is being made at a colossal budget of Rs. 80 crores. The film is slated to hit screens on 23rd November 2018.
