MUMBAI: From Priyanka Chopra in ‘Fashion’ to Kareena Kapoor Khan in ‘Heroine’, director Madhur Bhandarkar has worked with some of the biggest heroines in Bollywood. And looks like he wants to continue that streak with his next film.
His next film ‘Marr Jaanwaa’ will be a romantic musical unlike his previous reality based films. “The film has been designed as a musical entertainer and its treatment will be very different from the dark zone that Madhur’s films traditionally explore. In fact it would be more on the lines of a Basu Chatterjee or a Hrishikesh Mukherjee film.”
Therefore, the three actress that Madhur Bhandarkar is looking out for to headline ‘Marr Jaanwaa’ are Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor.
The source said, “Deepika has already shown her range as an actress in her last few outings while Sonam’s ‘Raanjhanaa’ too grabbed eyeballs. Just like that film, even ‘Marr Jaanwaa’ is based in the Northern belt so that makes her a strong contender. Another name being considered is Katrina.”
At the same time, Madhur Bhandarkar also is looking to cast the two male leads in the movie.
