Priyadarshan and Rishi Kapoor to work together for the first time


South filmmaker Priyadarshan who has directed many films like ‘Hera Pheri’, Bhool Bhulaiyaa’, Hulchul and others is set to return with a Bollywood film once again.

After a string of successful movies his subsequent films ‘Billu’, ‘Aakrosh’, ‘Tezz’ failed to live up to expectations. His last Hindi film ‘Rangrezz’ starring Jackky Bhagnani which released in 2013 was a box office dud. Following this, he took a break from making Hindi cinema and shifted his focus to Malayalam films.

Known for his comedy films, Pridarshan will begin his second innings in Bollywood by directing a very emotional plot and will be working with veteran actor Rishi Kapoor for the first time in his career.

Speaking about this Rishi Kapoor said in amazement, “Can you believe it?”

"During all these years we've never worked together. Priyan is the most prolific director in India along with David Dhawan. I've done innumerable films with David. Not Priyan," the actor was quoted as saying.

The filmmaker has mostly worked with Tabu, Suniel Shetty, Paresh Rawal, Akshay Kumar and Akshaye Khanna.

Meanwhile, Rishi Kapoor is busy promoting his upcoming film ‘All Is Well’ which also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Supriya Pathak and Asin. The film directed by Umesh Shukla is set to hit screens on August 21.

The actor is also shooting for Karan Johar’s production ‘Kapoor and Sons’ being directed by Umesh Shukla.
