It has been confirmed that Siddharth Anand’s upcoming film Bang Bang, an adaptation of the Hollywood film Knight and Day will release worldwide on 1 May 2014. The film, which will star Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif in the leading roles, will officially commence shooting next month. It was initially scheduled to release on Valentine’s Day 2014, but has now been changed to a May release.
Siddharth Anand is a famous name within the industry after having directed hit films like Salaam Namaste (2005) Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008) and Anjaana Anjaani (2010). The screenplay for Bang Bang has been written by Sujoy Ghosh (director of Kahaani), Suresh Nair (director of Singh is Kinng) and Abbas Tyrewala (director of Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na).
Bang Bang will be produced by Fox Star Studios, who are beginning to make a mark in Bollywood after being part of big projects like Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola (2013). Hrithik and Katrina have been paired before in Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011) and together, they delivered great on-screen chemistry. Will they be able to pull it off again in Bang Bang? We will just have to wait and see once the film releases next year.
Stay tuned as we will be bringing to you all the latest updates on this exciting project!
