After ‘Raavan’, Abhishek-Aishwarya go ‘Crooked’April 10th, 2009 - 1:44 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, April 10 (IANS) Real-life couple Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai, who are busy wrapping up Mani Ratnam’s “Raavan”, have now also teamed up for slick espionage film “Crooked”.
They are carrying on with the trend set by them and another real-life pair, Saif Ali khan and Kareena Kapoor, who are playing spies in Sriram Raghavan’s “Agent Vinod”.
“Our slick espionage thriller will be in the same genre as ‘The Bourne Identity’. It will be shot in Greece, Istanbul, Thailand and India,” said Ritesh Sidhwani, the producer of “Crooked”.
Gul Panag and Jimmy Shergil along with Boman Irani, who has just wrapped up Shyam Benegal’s latest, will also be playing key roles in the film.
“The English-language title will most probably change,” says Sidhwani, who’s working with the entire cast, barring Boman, for the first time.
The film will be directed by Abhinay Deo who is currently in the process of wrapping up Aamir Khan Productions’ “Delhi Belly” with Imran Khan and Shernaz Treasuryvala in the cast.
