Anil Kapoor to co-produce a teen comedy with Virgin Produced
Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor‘s banner ‘Anil Kapoor Film Company’, is all set to co-produce a teen comedy with Richard Branson’s media company ‘Virgin Produced’. Anil Kapoor with daughter Rhea Kapoor has entered into a partnership with Virgin Produced. This is Richard Branson’s first Bollywood project.
The as yet untitled teen comedy, will be directed by debutant Karan Boolani. The music for the movie will be given by music maestro A.R.Rahman. The story of the movie is about teenagers, who meet during their freshman year at an American University and become friends for life. The makers will be introducing fresh talent from India and overseas in the teen comedy.
Rhea Kapoor said, “We have had this project with us for a bit. Our film reflects the voice of the generation. It’s a risk we have taken, so we don’t know if this will work. You do it because you are passionate about films. We are making this film for a global audience so it isn’t specifically for Bollywood or Hollywood markets. We aren’t going to filter the content and that will be a challenge.”
Rhea further added, “We are so excited to have Rahman score music for us. I’ve been working with him on the album for a bit. Dad and Rahman sir will help nurture talent for us for the film.”
It has not been as yet confirmed if Anil Kapoor, will be starring in the movie.
