Mumbai, Apr 19 (): Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif will start shooting ‘Bang Bang’ on May 1 in Europe. Bang Bang is a remake of Hollywood’s 2010 comedy, Knight and Day which featured Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz in lead roles.
Made under the production of Fox Star Studios, ‘Bang Bang’ will be directed by Siddharth Anand. His first film as a director was 2005 Salaam Namaste, starring Saif Ali Khan and Preity Zinta. He later made Ta Ra Rum Pum (2007), Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008) and Anjaana Anjaani (2010).
Shooting for Bang Bang will take place across India, Europe and Far East. A very close source to the production house said that the film was initially planned to be shot in Kashmir but the production house did not get the necessary permissions. They could not wait any longer; as Hrithik and Katrina had tight schedules, they had changed the location to Europe.
The Europe shooting schedule will be 40 days long. The shooting starts on May 1 and and the movie will release on the same date next year and both Hirthik and Katrina are undergoing physical training to get into the roles. It is said that Hrithik had been spending a lot of time working on his body.
Katrina too had taken up active workout sessions. The movie is an action-thriller, so they both have to focus more on their physical training sessions.
A statement said that Bang Bang will feature “edge-of-the-seat excitement, spectacular stunt sequences and intense chemistry, as Hrithik and Katrina will be seen in never-seen-before avatars”.
Hrithik and Katrina were last seen together in silver screens in ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’. Hrithik has Krrish 3 for this year, while Katrina has Dhoom: 3.
Suresh Nair and Abbas Tyrewala have written dialogues for Bang Bang, while the screenplay of the movie has been written by Sujoy Ghosh. The music for the film will be composed by popular duo, Vishal-Shekhar.
