The first time we heard about London Dreams was way back in 2006, when the first shot of the film, featuring Salman Khan, was canned at Amritsar's historic Golden Temple. At that time it was Rajkumar Santoshi who was the director of the movie and the cast comprised Salman Khan and Ajay Devgan, with Lara Dutta and Priyanka Chopra being discussed as the female leads. Without getting into the nitty-gritty of who did what and joining the blame game band, the result was that the project was put on the backburner.
However, there have been some positive developments on the London Dreams front and the latest on the subject being that the producer of the project P.J Singh has moved on with the script/story of the film to Vipul Amrutlal Shah. The cast too has undergone a sea change and London Dreams is now expected to feature Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif. But that will happen only and when all the legal issues relating to the film are sorted out.
For now let us talk about more pleasant and melodious things! Good news is that the project seems to be really happening. The super talented trio of Shankar Mahadevan, Ehsaan Noorani and Loy Mendosa, better known as S-E-L, have been officially roped in to compose the rocking tracks for the movie (instead of A.R. Rahman), which is based on the life of two London based rock stars!
Here's hoping that all the impediments are removed and the 'dream' project becomes a reality.
