With MISSION ISTAANBUL slated for release this Friday, its producers - Popcorn [Suniel Shetty] and Balaji [Ekta Kapoor] - have decided to repeat director Apoorva Lakhia for their next venture. While MISSION ISTAANBUL explores the issue of global terrorism, their next venture, called GENERATION X, will be an action-comedy.
"This one's a 7-hero film," Apoorva enlightens me. So far, the makers have finalized only four names - Sanjay Dutt, Suniel Shetty, Zayed Khan and Tusshar Kapoor. "I would love to work with Shabir Ahluwalia and Nikitin Dheer [they enact key roles in MISSION ISTAANBUL]. Plus, we will cast the winner of the reality show 'Bollywood Ka Ticket' in one of the leads," Apu adds.
Apu is yet to zero in on three leading ladies [under finalization]. GENERATION X begins filming next year.
