Director Punit Malhotra, who made his Bollywood debut with romantic comedy ‘I Hate Luv Storys’, said that his third movie ‘Gutka’, that will star Akshay Kumar, will be very different from his first two movies.
“I am making a drama...my next film 'Gutka'. Akshay plays the lead in the film. It's a drama and it's a completely different film from what I have made earlier," Malhotra told IANS.
No other casting details other than Akshay Kumar playing the lead have been revealed. The director said that it was too early to divulge any information.
“It's too early to talk about it. We have to lock the script and then it will go on the floors. We haven't finalized the leading actress yet,” he said.
Punit Malhotra’s upcoming movie ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’ too is a romantic movie and stars Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor in lead roles.
“In the film, it is nicely established that Kareena is elder to Imran. They are an unusual pair. I wanted to work with Imran again (after I Hate Luv Storys) and the film was written keeping him in mind. As far as the girl in the film is concerned, only Kareena could have pulled off this role," he said.
‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’ is a romantic story about a guy (Imran Khan) and his struggles to win back his love (Kareena Kapoor).
Directed by Punit Malhotra ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’ is produced by Karan Johar.
The movie will release on November 22.
