If the grapevines are to be correct, Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan are both playing terrorists in Rensil D’Silva’s next. More recently, rumors were flying around tinseltown, that the untitled movie was finally being named Jeehad. However, D’Silva put those rumors to rest, “No… my film is not called Jihaad. It’s a name that the media seems to have given the film but it’s not the official title.”
He did however, confirm that the movie was set in the surroundings of terrorism, “It’s a romantic thriller set against the backdrop of global terrorism… can’t reveal plot points or character sketches at this point of time.” Over 40% of the movie has been shot in Philadelphia, Delhi and currently ongoing in Mumbai.
D’Silva has taken on a big chunk of the hit Omkara cast which, apart from Kapoor and Khan, also includes Vivek Oberoi. Initially Tara Sharma was due to star opposite Oberoi but the actress is on her way to becoming a mother and has been replaced by Minissha Lamba. The supporting cast also includes veteran actors Om Puri and Kirron Kher along with some newcomers.
This is definitely a film to watch out for. We will bring you more updates as we hear them.
