Recently actress Nisha Kothari was ousted from Aditya Datt's Good Luck rumouredly for throwing weight on the sets of the film and acting pricey. However Aditya gives the regular date problem reason for her disassociation. So who has taken Nisha's place? "It's Sayali Bhagat", confirms the young filmmaker. "She will be playing the main female lead in the film along with Ranvir Shorey and Lucky Ali."
But who's playing the male lead? "It's Aryeman Ramsay who debuted with Raj Kumar Santoshi's Family - Ties of Blood alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar last year". Aditya adds, "Good Luck talks about how luck plays a big confusion in the lives of these characters. It's a musical comedy. We have already started shooting for the film. I am planning to wrap this movie by the end of July and release it this year itself. Anu Malik has done the music".
Ask him about the choice of his male lead and Aditya replies, "Though it is Aryeman's second movie, I'll call it his re-launch movie. He has a very good character in movie." Aryeman on the contrary says, "I am doing a negative role in a movie, more like an anti hero. My debut film didn't do well but its ok. It is just a bad phase and I hope that the movie Good Luck brings me some good luck. Apart from Good Luck I've signed four films. One of them will be directed by Ananth Mahadevan." That's quite a strong comeback.
With Aryeman playing the male lead, it becomes quite obvious to assume that his producer father Keshu Ramsay would be associated with the project? Keshu however defends, "Good Luck is not my film though it is being produced by my younger brother Karan Ramsay along with Jagdish Sharma". However he does admit that Good Luck is going to be Aryeman Ramsay's re-launch film as the script has been written keeping him in mind.
Coming to Keshu, we haven't heard much from the producer post the failure of Family? What's he up to these days? Keshu reveals, "Currently I am working on a subject and that is going to be with actor Akshay Kumar. Our last film was Family and I make all my films with Akshay. He started his career with me and in last 15 years we have done around 15 films together".
Ask him more about the film and Keshu says, "The film has not been titled yet. In fact I have 3 scripts ready with me. One is action, second is comedy and the third is a family drama. Akshay has to read the script and decide which one he wants to work on. The heroine will be finalized accordingly".
