Besides, The Sky Is Pink featuring Priyanka Chopra, Zaira Wasim and Farhan Akhtar, Roy Kapur Films‘ next production is Saare Jahaan Se Achcha. Saare Jahaan Se Achcha will be directed by Mahesh Mathai of Bhopal Express fame and written by Anjum Rajabali. The film is a biopic on Rakesh Sharma – the first Indian astronaut. A joint production with RSVP, the movie will feature an A-list cast, the announcement of which will be made by the end of this year. The film will go on floors in February.

Post that, there is Sindbad – a thriller inspired by merchant navy officer Audumbar Bhoi, whose ship was attacked by Somali pirates. Directed by Vinil Mathew, the script has been penned by NH10 fame writer Sudip Sharma. The casting is still underway.

In 2019, Sooni Taraporevala will direct Ballet Boys. The fact-based story is on the lives of two slum boys, one Hindu and the other Muslim, who rise to fame after being discovered by an Israeli dance instructor.

They will also produce a film based on the real life story of Vijendra Singh Rathore, a truck driver who found his lost wife after a 19-month search in the aftermath of flash floods in North India. The story is yet under development.

Commenting on the same, Siddharth Roy Kapur said,

“I’m genre-agnostic and scale-agnostic. Instinctively, I react more to drama, human drama, family drama, and love stories than to say, something like horror, but I’m open to all kinds.”

Roy Kapur Films will also be producing 10 original digital shows for Mukesh Ambani’s upcoming Jio content platform that will start streaming from 2019.

Regarding this Siddharth said,

“The really exciting part for me about the Jio association is the breadth of reach that Jio has in India.”

We wish Siddharth Roy Kapur and Roy Kapur Films all the luck for these projects.
