After the smashing success of Shootout At Lokhandwala, director Apoorva Lakhia is geared up to start his next film, titled Mission Istanbul. To start with, he has roped in a huge star cast for this film as well: Abhishek Bachchan, Bobby Deol, Vivek Oberoi, Tusshar and television actor Shabbir Ahluwalia [he made his big screen debut in Shootout At Lokhandwala].
One more lead man is to be finalized. While Abhishek, Bobby and Vivek play 'good guys', Tusshar, Shabbir and one more actor are the 'bad boys'. Two leading ladies are under finalization.
Although Lakhia is tightlipped about the cast, it's reliably learnt that the film is based on terrorism and will be shot in Afghanistan, Srinagar, Mumbai and Istanbul. If shooting in Afghanistan isn't possible for some reason, a massive set replicating Afghanistan will be built in Jaisalmer to can those portions.
Shooting for this multi-starrer starts from 1st October. Suniel Shetty's Popcorn and Ekta Kapoor's Balaji will produce this film.
