imran khanLot of rumours and speculations have been doing the rounds regarding Imran Khan’s new films. And if the industry buzz is to believed, he is the next big thing! With Kidnap, Luck ( to be released soon) and 7 Days in Paris in the making, we will not be surprised if he goes back to Mamujaan to get his ass saved.

In an interview to Sunday Mid Day, Imran has clarified the status of his upcoming films. We can’t find the online link but have put it all here. Put an end to all those rumours and read on.

Zoya Akhtar’s film – It’s not true that I have signed on Zoya Akhtar’s film. Zoya has called me but I have not read or heard the narration. I am not saying whether it’s with Ranbir Kapoor or Farhan Akhtar yet.

Dibakar Banerjee’s film – He has told me a story but hasn’t written a screenplay yet. The cast he wants is with Abhay Deol and Katrina Kaif. It has no gay angle, Abhay isn’t playing a gay guy.

Puneet Malhotra’s film – Its a fuzzy, popcorn, date movie romcom that will start middle of october. With Sonam Kapoor, I have a feeling we will be good together. Its produced by Karan Johar and is titled I hate love stories.

Delhi Belly – Easily the most exciting film I have worked on. It also involved great deal of suffering with that damned beard and long hair. I dont know if the movie will make money or people will watch it. There is a fair chance that there will be protests and theatres will be burned (???). But it’s going to be awesome. I saw the first cut, its really a cool film.

Hmm. What he is saying about Delhi Belly, if its true, we are damn excited. Bring on the controversies. Let the theatres burn! Because other films are dull and boring. Click here and here to read our posts on his other films Luck & 7 Days in Paris.

imran khanOur header has become too long. Because we could not prioritise which one is more important. We read the story of Sanjay Doom Gadhvi’s film 7 Days In Paris. We think Imran Khan should be worried about the choices he is making. And Katrina Kaif is out of the film. Since all three news bits are related, we have randomly put down our seven, ok, eight pointers. Join the dots and see if it makes sense.

1. Every director in bollywood wants to set a love story in Paris, every one wants to make their version of Before Sunrise & Before Sunset.  And Sanjay Gadhvi is NO Richard Linklater.

2. 7 Days in Paris ( Spoiler Alert) – its a love story set in Paris. Two strangers. Case of mistaken identity. They fall in love. First half is all walk the talk and talk while walking. 2nd half – mistaken identities revealed. Lovers tiff and finally a happy ending. And yeh, there is an important bad pasta scene in the film! In short, nothing new in the film and we surely aren’t looking forward to it!

3. Gadhvi has changed the script following Imran Khan’s suggestions. We have read the old version, not sure if it has been changed for good or bad. Imran Khan need not pretend smart. He needs to act smart. Check.

4. After the debacle of Kidnap, Imran Khan thinks love stories are the way to success. And he wants to do only love stories now! Dude, it cant be Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na every time. A bad film is a bad film, thriller or love story!Check again.

sanjay gadhvi5. Gadhvi is close to Vandana Malik, head of Studio18. Her daughter Avantika Malik is dating Imran. And Studio18 is producing the film. We doubt our mother-in-laws. We doubt those mom-in-laws more who can sign fat cheques. And a desperate mom-in-law who wants her daughter to get married to Imran Khan, is dangerous! Check check!

6. Those who have seen Imran Khan’s Luck, they think Luck makes Kidnap look like masterpiece. No comment. Check check!

7. And those who have read the full script of 7 Days In Paris, they are willing to bet that Gadhvi will make even Paris look boring! And are ROFL reading the pasta scene again and again.

Katrina-Kaif8. According to Mumbai Mirror, in the new script, Katrina Kaif’s role has been cut drastically. And so, she is not interested in doing the film anymore. You can read the full story here. We are not sure who has a better understanding of scripts – Imran Khan, Katrina Kaif, Sanjay Doom Gadhvi, Vandana Malik or Studio18!
