This season of family entertainers just got more interesting with the announcement of the shoot schedule of a brand new film, Abhi Nahin Toh Kabhi Nahin. The project will introduce to the industry the maverick producer duo of Virender K Arora and Arjun N Kapoor, who are business partners and film aficionados.
Abhi Nahin Toh Kabhi Nahin’s ensemble cast is a heady mix of legendary stars and talented young guns. It includes Pankaj Kapur, Lara Dutta, Rajeev Khandelwal, Sanah Kapur, Sanjay Kapoor and Himansh Kohli among others.
In the last week of May, the film’s cast and crew will set off for Lonavla to kick off the first shoot schedule, a song sequence that will feature a debutante, whose identity is being kept under wraps. He will also be joined by actor Himansh, who had a dream debut in the Hindi film industry with his super hit film Yaariyan.
Producers Arora and Kapoor, who have managed to hit headlines in B-Town with every new signing for Abhi Nahin Toh Kabhi Nahin believe they have an ace up their sleeves.
“About the debutante, even though I don’t want to reveal his name yet, but let’s just say his first role on the big screen will surely have the girls swooning” says Arora.
After an expected fun shoot at Lonavala, the team behind this heart-warming rom-com will proceed to the picturesque Darjeeling for a single schedule that will wrap up the film. With his first Bollywood venture taking shape along with some of the industry’s finest talents, Kapoor can barely hide his excitement.
“The past few weeks have been hectic– we have been closely involved with the team on pre-production, storyline and the music. The film’s four love stories, all at different stages, show the lives of the protagonists through their own beautiful journeys. This unique project being our first film is a dream-come-true moment. Having said that, it is just the beginning of a long-drawn exciting film journey for us,” he says.
With that said this isn’t Arora and Kapoor’s only Bollywood venture. They have already collaborated for films with industry stalwarts such as Priyadarshan and Kamal Haasan. They also have a romantic musical extravaganza tentatively titled Sitaarey, all in a span of one year. Currently, they are preparing themselves for a path-breaking journey ahead.
Abhi Nahin Toh Kabhi Nahin is set to release around Valentine’s 2016
