The film will star Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the lead. I will be producing the film myself under my new banner."
The film will be shot in Mumbai, Rome, New York and Malaysia. Santoshi, whose multi starrer Power, is also under production, will be shooting both the films simultaneously.
He informs, "We have shot about eight days for Power and now we are working out the dates of our actors. Since it’s a huge film with multiple stars, it takes time to adjust everyone’s dates. Hopefully the dates will be re-worked and we should start the second schedule of the film soon."
