Though we’re only halfway through 2014, if there’s one film you should look out for next year, then it is Fitoor, directed by Abhishek Kapoor. Famed for his critical hit Kai Po Che (2013), Kapoor is teaming up again with UTV Motion Pictures for this romantic saga, which is reportedly based on Charles Dickens’ novella Great Expectations.
Fitoor will see legendary actress Rekha, alongside the empress of Bollywood Katrina Kaif, who are working together for the first time. We cannot wait to see both actresses electrify the screen with their beauty and talent. Also starring the amazing Aditya Roy Kapur, the film will be based on the relationship between a Kashmiri boy named Noor (Kapur), his muse Firdaus (Kaif) and the Begum (Rekha).
Speaking about this exciting project, UTV Managing Director Sidharth Roy Kapur had this to say to the Indian media. “Abhishek is an exceptional filmmaker and we are very pleased to take our association with him forward, after the incredible success of Kai Po Che last year. We believe his cinematic vision for the Dickens classic, Great Expectations, along with this fantastic cast we’ve put together, will be something to look forward to.”
Abhishek Kapoor also added to the comments with this message. “Fitoor is a story of grand passion, beauty and love. The entire team is charged about what it promises to be. We’re inspired to go all-out and give it our best.”
Fitoor will be released in 2015! Stay tuned for the all the latest news and updates on this much-anticipated film. In the meantime, check out the first look image of the cast!
