Vipul Shah’s much talked about project stars the newly crowned King of Bollywood, Akshay Kumar, and the gem of an actress, Aishwarya Rai. The film is making news these days, however, for more reasons than just its exciting lead pair.
Word is that Karisma and Kareena Kapoor’s father, Mr Randhir Kapoor, is being cast in the role of a scientist in the film. Randhir, you may recall, last appeared on screen in Honey Irani’s Armaan in which he essayed the role of Preity Zinta’s father. Vipul Shah, who is a huge fan of both Mr Rishi and Randhir Kapoor, had his dream come true for Namastay London in which he worked with Rishi Kapoor. Now he’s got his eyes set on Randhir.
The director spoke to Mid-Day about the character that Randhir has been cast in and clarified that the audiences should not expect the classic mad scientist but instead one who’s rather calm and forever lost in his own strange world.
Vipul Shah has yet to confirm the rumored title Action Replay but this Akki-Ash starrer is going on floors this March!
