From 'Kool' to 'Fool'. In an effort to steal the thunder from the sequel for the enormously-successful Kya Kool Hai Hum from producer Ekta Kapoor, the original film's director is now producing Kya Fool Hain Hum.
Ekta apparently is more amused than annoyed by this wannabe comedy which Sangeeth Sivan (now banished from Balaji) is co-producing with Sanjay Ahluwalia.
Cinematographer-filmmaker Santosh Sivan's brother, Sangeeth Sivan is best known for the raunchy comedy that he made for Ekta's company. However, the much-talked-about sequel won't be directed by Sangeeth.
Ajay Chandok, former assistant to David Dhawan, who is set to release his comedy Khallballi- Fun Unlimited this week and who has earlier directed Sanjay Dutt, Saif Ali Khan and Bipasha Basu in Nehlle Pe Dehlla, is directing Kya Fool Hain Hum for producer Sangeeth Sivan.
However, the parody Kya Fool Hain Hum on the parodic Kya Kool Hain Hum seems to be in a spot of trouble even before taking off.
Govinda and Sohail Khan who are supposed to be part of the project deny being in it. Govinda has decided to sign no more films for now while Sohail Khan hasn't even heard of the project! Govinda calls the rumours of his being in a film called Kya Fool Hain Hum, "another stupid mazaaq".
But actor Ashish Chowdhary thinks otherwise. "I think Sohail and Chi Chi are part of the film", he says. That leaves close friends Riya Sen and Ashish Chowdhary in Kya Fool Hain Hum.
Wonder who the fool is!
