Salman – Kareena – Katrina teamed?

A new trend has emerged of late, that of costume designers turning film directors! The latest to do so is Vikram Phadnis, who has been associated with Salman Khan since the past few years. Besides designing outfits for Salman, the talented dress designer has also handled the styling of films like MUJHSE SHAADI KAROGI and KYUN! HO GAYA NA Reportedly, the designer’s directorial debut will be a love story, starring one hero and two heroines. And the buzz is that Vikram has signed Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif to enact the principal roles in his directorial debut. The news is partly true, Vikram informs me, It will be a one hero-two heroine fare for sure, but I haven’t spoken to either Salman or Kareena or Katrina. In fact, I am still in the process of writing my film, so the question of casting the stars at this juncture just doesn’t arise. What Vikram has firmly decided is that the film will roll in March next year and will be shot in a start-to-finish schedule. Portions of the film will be canned in Delhi and Jaipur in India, while two important schedules will be held in Australia and Spain, respectively. What’s the essence of the film? It’s about relationships. I have borrowed from personal experiences and incorporated incidents in my script. Something that must’ve transpired with a friend and has stayed in my mind, has automatically found a place in the script. Actually, it’s a simple story, with no villains or action sequences, Vikram divulges. Though Vikram hasn’t spoken to Shiamak Davar yet, he would love to have him choreograph the songs in the film. And there’s a reason behind it. One of the relationships in my film is placed in a dance academy and I strongly feel that someone like Shiamak would be able to do complete justice to those portions, Vikram adds. One vital question. Has Vikram done a course in film-making or assisted someone to handle the directorial reins so early in his career? You won’t believe this, but to date I don’t know how to sketch the designs. I have it all in my mind. I do express what I want to my karigars, who in turn execute the work. Similarly, I’ve decided to hire competent assistants, besides a sound cinematographer and editor before I commence shooting, he admits. Siddharth Raj Anand, who has penned the screenplay of the recent hit HUM TUM, is writing the screenplay of Vikram’s debut film.
