The Cannes Film Festival is not only about movies, it’s also about business. It’s the key annual event where producers and distributors from all over the world meet up to discuss projects and to strike deals. This year’s festival takes place from the 14-25 May and the President of the Jury will be French actress Isabelle Huppert.
What better location could there be for Sajid Nadiadwala to launch his mega-project Kambakht Ishq which stars Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor with a host of American stars such as Sylvester Stallone, Denise Richards and Superman Brandon Routh? The film is likely to be dubbed in English for the event.
News that Kareena Kapoor appears in a bikini in the movie has created mounting excitement, so much so that a Bihar entrepreneur has offered 1 crore alone for the distribution rights in that region. A 2-crores promotional video is also being made with Akshay and Sylvester. The movie looks destined to be this year’s big big hit!
Kareena has certainly been talking up the movie recently. “It’s a film which is full of glamour,” she says, “It has all the elements of a commercial film. You have exciting moments, lot of glitz and glamour and a whole lot of stunning locations to enjoy. I am quite excited about this film because I have an entirely new look in it.”
