MUMBAI: Bestfriends for life Abhishek Bachchan and Rohan Sippy have decided to take a break from one another. After starring in all the three films that Rohan Sippy has directed (Kuch Na Kaho, Bluffmaster and Dum Maro Dum) Abhishek Bachchan has decided to take a break from all things Sippy.
The actor is currently exploring an area beyond his comfort zone working with directors who aren’t necessarily personal friends (e.g Rohit Shetty), and has opted out of Rohan Sippy’s next to make way for Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunal Roy Kapoor who will do what appears to be a buddy-buddy film on the lines of ‘Bluffmaster’.
Says a source close to the project, “Rohan can’t dream of directing without Abhishek. He wrote his new film with Abhishek in mind to play one of the leads . He wanted to revive the ‘Bluffmaster’ duo of Abhishek and Riteish Deshmukh. But after ‘Dum Maro Dum’ Abhishek has done some serious re-thinking. He is not doing the next films of either of his childhood friends Rohan Sippy or Goldie Behl.”
The new Rohan Sippy film stars the ‘Vicky Donor’ actor Ayushmann Khurrana with the ‘Delhi Belly’ actor Kunal Roy Kapoor. Roy Kapoor had directed the political satire ‘Shall We Tell The President’ for producer Rohan Sippy 5 years ago.
Confirming the casting Kunal Roy Kapoor said, “It’s a rom-com. I can’t say much more. I am really looking forward to working with Rohan and Ayushmann.”
