Rajeev Khandelwal’s next a rip-off?


By Hindustan Times

Actor Rajeev Khandelwal’s second Bollywood venture Soundtrack, starring Soha Ali Khan, is the remake of award-winning Canadian film It’s All Gone Pete Tong and will release in August.

“Soundtrack is a remake of a cult film that won at the Toronto film festival five years back. We took the rights of It’s All Gone Pete Tong and adapted it in Indian style,” said director Neerav Ghosh.

“The story is about a musician, who comes to Mumbai and tries to make it big. The story is about the triumph of the human spirit,” he added.

Ghosh said Soha, who plays the role of a deaf-mute girl in the film, was not the original choice for the film. “We had Konkana Sen Sharma as the female lead but she had date issues. And then Soha came on board,” he said. “Soha has has learned sign language and a lot of other things that work for the character,” Ghosh added.
