Last week we reported that Hrithik Roshan had been signed on to play the lead in Siddharth Anand's next, which is said to be the remake of the Hollywood blockbuster Knight And Day. Now, the news is that Katrina Kaif has been roped in as the lead actress for the film.


Talking about the hot pair of Hrithik and Katrina in his film, Siddharth says, "Having Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif on board, the film is a treat not just for the audiences but also for me, as I will be directing them in the film."


Siddharth however clarifies that the film will not be an exact replica of the Hollywood blockbuster. Says Anand, "When we started the film it was supposed to be a remake of Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz's film Knight And Day, but I wasn't too happy to do a remake of the film completely. The reason being that there were certain points that according to me didn't work, that was when I decided to plug in what I felt could be solutions to the issues. Besides this there is also the issue that, Knight And Day when it released became a very popular film, but when my film releases, I don't want the audiences to just watch a remake. I want them to see it in a different light as it will be different. The audiences have to get something new."


Anand also informs that he got Sujoy Ghosh onboard to rewrite the script. "When I decided to rework on the script, we got in Sujoy Ghosh and Suresh Nair to develop the script and story line which since then has changed totally. In fact I can say confidently that though the idea of the film is still Knight And Day the audience will be in for a treat as there will be new twists and a whole different story line."


The film goes on floor in February 2013.

The actress has been finalised for Siddharth Anand’s Hindi remake of the Hollywood film Knight And Day



A week back, Mirror told you how Hrithik Roshan in keeping with his current streak of action films, has signed Siddharth Anand’s next project. The film, an official desi remake of the Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz starrer Knight And Day, required its hero to have a lean and mean acrobatic image. And Hrithik, who had recently got into superhero shape, fit the bill perfectly. However, the hunt for his perfect partner in this spy-on-the-run romantic thriller was still on. And now, Mirror learnt that Anand has found his leading lady. Katrina Kaif, who was last seen on the big screen fighting goons alongside Salman Khan in Ek Tha Tiger, has been roped in to play Diaz’s Indian counterpart.


The film, yet untitled, goes on floors early next year. It is produced by Fox Star India. In fact,when contacted, the CEO of Fox Star Studiosm Vijay Singh confirmed that Katrina has been roped in for the venture.


“The Hrithik-Katrina pairing in Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara was well received by the audience. Besides, both of them are very popular with the youth,” said Singh.


Declaring that the film will go on floors in February, Singh added, “It will be shot in India and also in the Middle East and Europe.”


According to a source close to the project, unlike the generic action thriller, this one will have the leading lady sharing equal footage with the hero.


“Katrina’s role is as lengthy as Hrithik’s. She will have to do a lot of action in the film as well. Both of them will have to undergo rigorous training before the shooting begins,” said the source.

Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif have been signed to play the lead in the remake of Hollywood film Knight and Day. The film will be directed by Siddharth Anand, who has previously directed films like Salaam Namaste, Ta Ra Rum Pum, Bachna Ae Haseeno and Anjaana Anjaani.


Talking to us, Siddharth says “Yes, I will be directing the film. Initially, it was supposed to be a remake of Knight and Day (Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz), but certain points in the film didn’t work for me. When it released, Knight and Day was a very popular film and I didn’t want the Indian audience to just watch a remake.”


To rework the script, Siddharth worked closely with Kahaani writers Sujoy Ghosh and Suresh Nair. A source close to the project informs “They have re-worked the script with Sujoy Ghosh and Suresh Nair. Major changes have been made to the storyline and it will be a completely new experience for the audience. The basic idea of Knight and Day remains, but with several new twists and turns.”


The film will be shot in India and Europe. The music is expected to be composed by Vishal-Shekhar, music directors of all Siddharth Anand films so far. The title of the film that goes on floors in February 2013, is yet to be confirmed.


This will be Hrithik’s second film with Katrina after the hugely successful Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Stay tuned for all the updates on the action thriller, that’s expected to release late 2013 or early 2014.
