It was filmmaker Bhushan Patel who paired Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover opposite each other, for the first time, in his horror flick ‘Alone’ (2015) and the rest is history. Soon, the onscreen couple fell in love with each other off screen as well and, after dating for almost a year, decided to walk down the aisle on 30th, April 2016. Now, 3 years after sharing the screen space for the first time, Bipasha and Karan are teaming up again for a new film and, interestingly, their new venture will be helmed by none other than Bhushan Patel.
Titled ‘Aadat’, the movie has been written by ace writer-director Vikram Bhatt with whom Bipasha has worked on a number of successful projects, including ‘Raaz’ (2002), ‘Footpath’ (2003), ‘Raaz 3’ (2012) and ‘Creature’ (2014), to name just a few. ‘Aadat’ will be produced by singer-turned-producer Mika Singh.
The film begins its production on 7th June in London. The makers are planning to wrap up the movie in a start-to-finish schedule of almost 45 days. We hope an announcement revealing the remaining cast is made soon.
Reports about Bipasha and Karan joining hands first surfaced in media last month when several media outlets reported that the couple was set to work together in a slice-of-life film. However, the latest we hear that ‘Aadat’ will have a thriller element as well. “While buzz was that it was being planned as a slice-of-life film, it will now have a thriller element added to it and is expected to hit theatres by the year-end,” a source says.
