Atul Kasbekar, the producer behind the hit film ‘Neerja’, is reportedly set to sign Vidya Balan for one of his upcoming projects.
PTI reports Kasbekar saying that he is waiting for Balan to complete ‘Kahaani 2’ before he discusses a collaboration. He said, “There are talks happening but because she is working on ‘Kahaani 2’ and Vidya is one of those people, who get into the zone of their character, we are waiting for her to be done with the film and then talk about our collaboration.”
Kasbekar also confirmed that he is working on a second project with Sonam Kapoor. “We are talking to Sonam for a film but there is time for that project to start. Sonam did a phenomenal job in ‘Neerja’ and we would want that our next collaboration is of a great standard too. With Ram, I am doing a comedy, whose idea I have written. We have got a writer on board and the work on the first draft has been started. If all goes well, the film will go on floors by the next year end.”
Kasbekar has confirmed that he will have all his future films co-produced by Tanuj Garg – the former CEO of Balaji Motion Pictures. He said, “I have known Tanuj for the longest time now. Our sensibilities match and I am happy to have collaborated with him. So, from now on all the projects will be under our partnership.”
