Katrina Kaif and Hrithik Roshan in Siddharth Anand’s next

Last week we reported that Hrithik Roshan had been signed on to play the lead in Siddharth Anand’s next, which is said to be the remake of the Hollywood blockbuster Knight And Day. Now, the news is that Katrina Kaif has been roped in as the lead actress for the film.

Talking about the hot pair of Hrithik and Katrina in his film, Siddharth says, “Having Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif on board, the film is a treat not just for the audiences but also for me, as I will be directing them in the film.”

Siddharth however clarifies that the film will not be an exact replica of the Hollywood blockbuster. Says Anand, “When we started the film it was supposed to be a remake of Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz’s film Knight And Day, but I wasn’t too happy to do a remake of the film completely. The reason being that there were certain points that according to me didn’t work, that was when I decided to plug in what I felt could be solutions to the issues. Besides this there is also the issue that, Knight And Day when it released became a very popular film, but when my film releases, I don’t want the audiences to just watch a remake. I want them to see it in a different light as it will be different. The audiences have to get something new.”

Anand also informs that he got Sujoy Ghosh onboard to rewrite the script. “When I decided to rework on the script, we got in Sujoy Ghosh and Suresh Nair to develop the script and story line which since then has changed totally. In fact I can say confidently that though the idea of the film is still Knight And Day the audience will be in for a treat as there will be new twists and a whole different story line.”

The film goes on floor in February 2013.
