With special effects becoming more and more accessible to filmmakers in the East, rumours are rife about two space genre films are soon to come out of Bollywood. And they both have a husband working on one, and his wife working on the other.
According to Deccan Chronicle, when Mahesh Mathai and Siddharth Roy Kapur began brainstorming the idea of making such a film that would depict the life of real astronaut Rakesh Sharma, they seemed to be on quite a roll, even managing to sign Priyanka Chopra and Aamir Khan. However, when they both ended up dropping out of the project, the producers had to go back to the drawing board. Now after much deliberation, the makers of the film have managed to get none other than Shah Rukh Khan on board. Now, although Khan is spending much of his time working on the release of his forthcoming ‘Zero’, he will be investing a lot in this one too.
With Roy Kapur in the midst of working on the biopic, his wife Vidya Balan, who has turned out to be his professional competition, has been signed for another space thriller that will also star Akshay Kumar and Nimrat Kaur. The yet to be titled film will be directed by Jagan Shakti and will be another joint production between R Balki and Viacom 18.
Looks like these will definitely be ones to look out for.
