Director Danish Aslam who made his directorial debut with the average film Break Ke Baad, starring Imran Khan and Deepika Padukone, is all set to give another shot to direction.
According to a leading tabloid, Danish is planning to give a modern twist to the classic Shakespearan tragedy Romeo and Juliet in his next. But Danish is not your ordinary storyteller, as his love story will have a gay spin to it.
Balaji head Ekta Kapoor will be producing the film.
“The casting will be locked only at the end of March. The story revolves around two guys from warring families and a girl. One of the guys is a closet homosexual. That makes the film daringly different.”
When Danish was contacted to confirm the news, he said, “Right now, I’m not authorised to talk about the project. Please call Balaji for details. It’s my film, but they are the producers so it’s better that they make an official announcement.”
