Kangana, Irrfan Khan to romance in ‘Divine Lovers’
After winning the heart of the cine-goers in ‘Queen’ and playing a completely contrast character in ‘Revolver Rani’ which is loud, aggressive and crazy, Kangana Ranaut now turns divine lover. Yes, you read it right; Kangana Ranaut will star opposite versatile Irrfan Khan in Sai Kabir’s next outing, ‘Divine Lovers’.
"I'm doing a film called Divine Lovers with Kangana and Irrfan
in the lead. It would be a complete contrast to Revolver Rani. It won't
be loud, aggressive, violent and splashy like Revolver Rani. But again Divine
Lovers would be about the great Indian dream," Kabir said.
‘Divine Lovers’ will be shot in Mumbai and Aligarh.
"It'd be set in the lower middle-class and it would be also about the moral corruption of the middle-class," he said.
"I want to build my hero Alka Singh as a franchise. She'll be my toy to
tell many stories. I want her to do many things in the future, including fight
America and revive the Soviet Union," added the director.
But before that, Sai Kabir is directing a short film this monsoon.
"Again it's about the great Indian dream. This obsession with the middle-class comes from the fact that I was an assistant to Saeed Mirza and Kundan Shah for nine years. I am highly influenced by them. But I feel my cinema needs to make money, so I can continue making the films that I want to," he added.
Hope, Irrfan and Kangana's on-screen chemistry spark magic!
