Hrithik Roshan has started shooting for Ashutosh Gowariker's Jodha-Akbar. And we all know about his 3 film deal with Adlabs. But before the Adlabs film, he will be starting shooting for another film with Zoya Akhtar, sister of Farhan Akhtar. Zoya will finally make her directorial debut with this film titled Kismat Talkies. Kareena Kapoor will play the female lead in this film produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar under their Excel Films banner.
Zoya was to make her debut with a film titled Luck - By Chance in 2004. Unfortunately the film never took off. Finally Kismat Talkies is slated to roll by end of March 2007. The next release of Excel Films is Honeymoon Travel's Pvt Ltd. directed by Farhan's assistant Reema Kagti.
Also here is another exclusive. 2007 will see the acting debut of Farhan Akhtar. "There is one assignment that I'm doing which we had shot about 40 per cent before Don. It is Anand Surapur's The Fakir. It actually was supposed to be complete even before Don had gone on floors. But since the director had some personal issues to deal with, the shooting was stopped for a while. We will start again on November 2 and we are heading to Venice for a month's schedule to finish the film", informs Farhan. Let us wish him all the best for his acting debut. We are sure he can pull off acting as good as he directs films.
