Abhishek Kapoor’s directorial Kedarnath has been in the news for past few months after reports of his fall-out with KriArj Entertainment and T-Series made headlines because of financial and creative differences. The much-talked-about film has now found a new producer. Ronnie Screwvala and his creative production house RSVP will produce the movie with Abhishek.
Kedarnath is an eternal love story set against the backdrop of the flash floods that wrecked the temple town in June of 2013. It is a potent combination of love and religion, passion and spirituality.
“RSVP and Ronnie Screwvala believe in presenting content-driven films and are focused on delivering films backed by power-packed performances and talented directors,” says a source close to the project.
“It’s a great love story set against the backdrop of a very powerful true life event that affected us. It completely matches our vision of great stories that need to be told and we can’t wait to bring this story to the audiences early next year,” says Ronnie Screwvala.
“After Kai Po Che, Kedarnath will be our next venture together. Ronnie is an exemplary leader and I feel invigorated that he has stepped in and reinforced his faith in me. Just being in the room with Ronnie is a privilege, making a movie with him is an honour,” says Abhishek of the new collaboration
The first schedule for Kedarnath, starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan has already been completed in the mountainous region of Uttarakhand. The shoot will resume later this month in Mumbai.
