Best friends for life, Abhishek Bachchan and Rohan Sippy have decided to take a break from one another. After starring in all the three films that Rohan Sippy has directed (Kuch Na Kaho, Bluffmaster and Dum Maaro Dum) Abhishek Bachchan has decided to take a break from all things Sippy.
The actor currently exploring an area beyond his comfort zone working with directors who aren’t necessarily personal friends (e.g Rohit Shetty) has opted out of Rohan Sippy’s next to make way for Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunal Roy Kapoor who will do what appears to be a buddy-buddy film on the lines of Bluffmaster.
Says a source close to the project, “Rohan can’t dream of directing without Abhishek. He wrote his new film with Abhishek in mind to play one of the leads. He wanted to revive the Bluffmaster duo of Abhishek and Riteish Deshmukh. But after Dum Maaro Dum, Abhishek has done some serious re-thinking. He is not doing the next films of either of his childhood friends Rohan Sippy or Goldie Behl.”
The new Rohan Sippy film stars the Vicky Donor actor Ayushmann Khurrana with the Delhi Belly actor Kunal Roy Kapoor.
Roy Kapoor had directed the political satire The President Is Coming for producer Rohan Sippy 3 years ago.
Confirming the casting, Kunal Roy Kapoor said, “It’s a rom-com. I can’t say much more. I am really looking forward to working with Rohan and Ayushmann.”
