Vipul Shah, Akshay Kumar to team up again
By Subhash K. Jha, Bollywood Hungama News Network
While shooting London Dreams in London, Vipul quietly finished the script for his next film starring Akshay Kumar which he starts in February 2009
Says Vipul from Goa where he's holidaying with his family, "After doing Waqt, Namastey London and Singh Is Kinng, we had to do something that would take us into another zone. My next film with Akshay pushes the envelope even more. After that, there's the Singh Is Kinng sequel which I'd like Anees Bazmi to direct. But he's very busy. So it depends on him."
Vipul has also signed a 2-film deal with 20th Century Fox who are entering the Bollywood market with Vipul. One of these films would be a big Special-Effects spectacle again featuring Akshay Kumar. "So you see, Akshay remains a constant. But like I said, I worked with Ajay and Salman for the first time. And I felt equally at home. So I'll be working with them again for sure."
So where did all the rumours of a rift with Akshay come from? "Search me," Vipul laughs. "I was committed for this Goan holiday from long before. There was no way I could disappoint my sons. Akshay himself flew down from South Africa for just a day for his party and went back. So it was all done in a rush. Just because I don't attend his party, we've become enemies? What kind of logic is that? We've decided to have our own private Diwali bash as soon as he returns on November 11. We're also announcing the details of our next film together very shortly."
