A few months ago, we had told you about well known theatre personality and radio guru Roshan Abbas making his directorial debut with a film for Shahrukh Khan's production house Red Chillies Entertainment. While Roshan is all set to take his film (tentatively titled Always Kabhi Kabhi) on floors he is quick to dismiss the rumours that the film will also star Shahrukh.
Roshan said, "No...SRK is just producing the film. My film stars four fresh new faces, one among them is Zoa (daughter of Karim Morani) who is making her debut with this film. We are still finalizing some of the cast members and as of now have some known names too like Archana Puran Singh, Satish Shah etc. playing vital roles."
Roshan is also quick to dismiss rumours that his film is based on the popular social networking site Facebook. "See...as I have said earlier, the film is an adaptation of a play I had written and directed way back in 1999 called 'Graffiti' about life at high school. That play was set in '99 and this film is set in 2009 so it's but obvious that I would be having some elements which the youth of today connect with one of them being social networking sites such as Facebook. However, beyond that there is no real connection. The film is set in a high school and will try to capture the various emotions such as love, jealousy, pride that one goes through during school days. I believe some of the best days of our life are the ones that we spend in high school and it is this period of one's life that the film will portray."
Shooting of the film Always Kabhi Kabhi is scheduled to commence in mid-November at various locations across India. Pritam has been roped in to compose music for the film.
