Ekta Kapoor will support Kedarnath
The movie will mark the debut of Sara Ali Khan, and will feature Sushant Singh Rajput
Contrary to rumours of Ekta Kapoor pulling out of Kedarnath, Ekta will be joining hands with KriArj Entertainment and director Abhishek Kapoor on their next project featuring Sushant Singh Rajput and debutant Sara Ali Khan. The love story set in the course of a pilgrimage in the hilly terrains of Kedarnath will go on floors in August. The film showcases the backdrop of one of the most prominent Lord Shiva shrines.
Before the film went on floors, Ekta mulled on a number of ideas with her cousin Abhishek Kapoor but none materialised. Ekta says, “When we heard the story, we knew this was it. It’s Sara’s debut opposite Sushant. That makes it a fresh pair and adds an edge to the project. Kedarnath is an emotional and riveting tale that blends India’s beauty with a love story from the heartland, “
Virendra Arora of KriArj Entertainment signed off saying, “It was a matter of time before Balaji Motion Pictures and KriArj Entertainment joined hands and nothing better than Kedarnath for that. Shobha and Ekta Kapoor are inspiring figures. We take pride in joining forces with them and can’t wait to take the film on floors. Abhishek, we’re confident, will create something special for the audience.”
There were rumours earlier that Sushant had demanded a huge sum of money and the makers were planning to replace him. However, these appear to have been unfounded.
