Katrina Kaif all set to romance Sushant Singh Rajput

Sushant Singh Rajput is climbing the ladder of success slowly and steadily. After receiving accolades for his performance in ‘Kai Po Che’ and ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’, Sushant has bagged few more movies. He has been signed opposite Katrina Kaif for Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Fitoor’ which is an adaptation from Charles Dicken's classic 'The Great Expectations'. ‘Fitoor’ will go on floor early next year.

"I am currently working on the script of 'Fitoor'. I am really excited about it and will start shooting early next year. I am blessed that Katrina and Sushant are equally excited about the film," Abhishek told PTI.

For the first time, Sushant and Katrina will be working together. Sushant has worked with Abhishek in ‘Kai Po Che’ but Abhishek will be directing Kat for the first time. Abhishek commented about the casting, "They best suit the characters involved in the movie. I don't know how they will evolve since it's too early to know but I am hoping it turns out to be good."

Speaking about the film, Abhishek quipped, " It's an adaptation of Charles Dicken's classic 'The Great Expectations' . The story about about an orphan boy who falls in love with a girl from a wealthy family but is hardhearted." He further added " I am really excited about the movie and so are Sushant and Katrina. They are perfectly suited for the role but it is yet to be seen how they will evolve as the characters."

‘Kai Po Che’ is India’s official entry to Oscar and he is pinning high hopes for the film’s victory.

"I really don't know what are the parameters for a movies selection to Oscars... I have full faith in the people taking the decision and may the best man win. There is a lot of effort gone into the film and as a filmmaker I am satisfied," said the director.  

Katrina is currently busy shooting ‘Bang Bang’ and Yash Raj Films ‘Dhoom 3’ opposite Aamir Khan while Sushant has been signed for Shekhar Kapoor’s ‘Paani’.
