Sections of the media have been reporting that Vivek Oberoi and Abhishek Bachchan will feature in a promotional video for the upcoming film Mission Istanbul. Abhishek has a special appearance in the film which stars Vivek Oberoi and Zayed Khan in lead roles. The film is directed by Abhishek’s good friend, Apoorva Lakhia (Shootout at Lokhandwala).
Certain reports indicate that the two, who share a personal history together (Vivek dated Aishwarya before she married Abhishek), will feature together in a video. However, this rumour is entirely untrue. Yes, promotional videos will be shot on both these actors, but they will appear in separate videos. A source told Mumbai Mirror, “Both of them agreed immediately. Lakhia is a very good friend of both.”
The two songs will me simultaneously shot on the actors which has led to the film being shifted ahead by two weeks in order to provide promotional time for the two videos. Apoorva Lakhia tells IndiaFM, “We need time to promote these songs. Besides, I don’t want to hurry up on its post-production.” Wise choice, Apoorva!
And for those who were hoping to see Abhishek and Vivek in the same frame, there’s always a next time!
