After 2 States, Arjun Kapoor has bagged yet another upcoming Karan Johar production, Gutka. The film is a co-production between Dharma Productions and Hari Om Entertainment. I Hate Luv Storys and Gori Tere Pyaar Mein director, Punit Malhotra, will direct Gutka. The film will, also, star Akshay Kumar as the parallel male lead. According to reports, Gutka will be 'hardhitting' and have a strong social message to share.
Sounds like not all is great for director Sajid Khan. Yesterday, we heard the news of Saif Ali Khan reconsidering to work with him and today, about a massive show down between him and Akshay Kumar.
Last quarter we saw two production houses battle it out for screens during a Diwali release. Ajay Devgn's ADF pressed charges against YRF saying YRF was in an unfair tie-in arrangement with the exhibitors. The films in question were ADF's 'Son of Sardaar' and YRF's 'Jab Tak Hain Jaan'.
The sequel of 2007's hit film, 'Welcome' produced by Firoz Nadiadwala is soon going on floors but this time, the makers have decided to not go with Akshay Kumar. They have signed John Abaraham for the lead role but have not mentioned anything bout the female lead.
