Soha Ali Khan who maintained a low profile after her terrific performance in Rang De Basanti has been the most talked about actress of late now. With Mumbai Meri Jaan receiving a lot of critical acclaim at the box office, looks like producers are on the run for the actoress. Apart from Sudhir Mishra’s Tera Kya Hoga Johnny and Anil Senior Sharma’s Dil Kabaddi Soha has now been signed by producer Aditya Shastri for their forthcoming venture 99.
99 is the story of two different men in two different cities, who are bound by a common feeling of always being stuck at 99. They never seem to make it to a ‘century’ – figuratively speaking. It is a journey of two men, who want to break away from the rut and strike it big.
What follows is an unpredictable and hilarious ride through two cities with extremely likeable and very grounded characters, unbelievable circumstances, real twists of fate, small-time crooks, big-time conspiracies, fateful car crashes, ups of friendship, downs of love and a climax that will keep everybody on the edge of their seats.
The film is being directed by the director of ‘Flavours’, a film about Indians in US. ‘Flavours’ was a short film. “There is no lead as such in the film. There are various characters. It is a cool stylish, slick, fast-paced, realistic and importantly, very funny film. 99 is an original story inspired by real events” – informs producer Aditya Shastri. The film also stars Kunal Khemu and Boman Irani. “We are launching two more films later. One is ‘Click and Marry’ to be directed by Anu Menon and the third is ‘Charles and I’ to be directed by Prawaal Raman” – he informs.
