Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya rai have been signed up by Ritesh Sidhwani of Excel Entertainment for their next film titled Crooked, which will be directed by Abhinay Deo.
The film, also starring Boman Irani and Jimmy Sheirgill, is a suspense thriller with crime as background. Abhishek and Aishwarya do not play opposite each other.
The pre-production work is in progress and the rest of the cast and crew is in the process of being finalized.
The film will go to floors sometime in the middle of this year.
A while ago we had informed you about Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starring in a film directed by Abhinay Deo and to be produced by Excel Entertainment. Now a lot of speculation has been doing the rounds ever since that the film has been titled ‘Crooked’.
To get the facts straight, we got in touch with Ritesh Sidhwani of Excel. ‘Crooked’ is just the working title. We are still contemplating whether to use it or go in with a Hindi title.”
The last time Ritesh had spoken to us, he had said that besides Abhi-Ash the film would also star four other actors. So have they signed anyone as yet, “Yes, besides Abhishek and Aishwarya, the film will also star Boman Irani and Jimmy Sheirgill. We are yet to finalize a couple of other actors and would be making an announcement soon”, signs off Ritesh.
The film is a thriller and for a change Abhishek and Aishwarya are not paired opposite each other in this film.
