Sanjay Gupta may be recovering from ‘Jazbaa’ (2015) which was a film that many awaited due to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s comeback but it seems the director is eager to get started with his next. Rumour has it that he will be directing Hrithik Roshan in his forthcoming film which will be produced by Rakesh Roshan. The film will reportedly see Hrithik returning to the romance genre having focused on action most recently.
Pinkvilla quote a report stating a source revealing, “The film is an intense love story. Hrithik loved the subject. It�۪s written by a new writer who brought the concept to Sanjay. Directing a love story is also virgin territory for Gupta, who largely makes action-dramas. Hrithik was so pleased with this beautiful love story that he got papa Roshan on board to produce it”.
Apparently, the first print of ‘Jazbaa’ was also something that Gupta showed Rakesh first, “It�۪s an unusual and exciting collaboration with each player (Rakesh, Hrithik and Sanjay) bringing in their own individual experience to it, in their own way.”
If the news is true then Gupta and Hrithik will be coming together for the first time. The film will apparently go on the floors in July 2016 and be a three-month schedule to completion.
