SHAHID KAPOOR AND GENELIA D'SOUZA
Ken Ghosh is ecstatic with the way shooting has progressed for his yet untitled film with Shahid Kapur and Genelia D'Souza. Though he was a part of an unpleasant situation around a month back when Jiah Khan had to make way for Genelia, he is happy that now it is back to peaceful days with the Shahid-Genelia 'jodi' looking extremely positive.
'In the times when we are searching for that quintessential romantic 'jodi' in Bollywood, Shahid-Genelia may well fill in the void. They both really compliment each other quite well. Fingers crossed', says Ken who has earlier seen Shahid-Amrita and Shahid-Kareena 'jodi' in his first two films. While ISHQ VISHK was a teen romcom, FIDA was a romantic thriller.
How has the experience been when it comes to Shahid-Genelia 'jodi' in this light hearted romantic entertainer?
'Genelia is right up there. Period', Ken is quick to comment, 'She has caught the nuances of her character so well. There is a certain kind of energy expected from the newly written character and I am getting that from Genelia. I am very happy that Genelia came on board and Shahid too is glad that the entire unit is appreciating his newly found match.'
Even though both Shahid and Genelia have been around for six years (they had made their debut in 2003), no film maker paired the two youngsters together. However, Ken has taken that step and one looks forward to see how Shahid-Genelia 'jodi' indeed turns out to be one of the most promising 'jodis' of the current season.
