Yes, it has been finalized. Chetan Bhagat’s best story yet, “Two States” is to be made into a film by the same name. The most exciting news is that producer/director/writer musician/singer/choreographer Vishal Bhardwaj is the man who shall helm this project. The main character of “Krish” will be played by King Khan. But Vishal has yet to name the actress who will play “Ananya” in this story of cross-cultural love in our country.
The story in short is that Krish, a Punjabi boy, meets Ananya, a Tamil Bhrahmin at IIM Ahmedabad. They fall in love and hope to get married. But their families are dead against it. They decide to get married only after both the families agree. And this sends them on a trail of trials and tribulations that are not unlike the story of Ik Duje Ke Liye.
Vishal has said that Priyanka Chopra shall not be a part of this project due to her very Punjabi origins. What do you think? Can Piggy Chops play a Tam Brahm? Can she do “Illa Illa” as well as she would do a “Balle Balle”? Who else can play the role of Ananya? We think Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Deepika Padukone could do a great job. What do you think?
