With just two films, 99 and SHOR IN THE CITY, the director duo, Krishna DK and Raj Nidimoru, are a name to reckon with and much in demand. In fact, their next venture, GO GOA GONE, is being produced by Saif Ali Khan, under his home banner, Illuminati Films.
While no one has any doubts that Krishna and Raj would do a great job, there are a few who are curious to know why the duo is working with a top mainstream commercial hero like Saif for the first time. When we asked Krishna the same, he told us, "See, it is not that we have intentionally worked with Tusshar, Kunal Khemu and Pitobash in 99 and SHOR IN THE CITY. It was the requirement of the subject. For GO GOA GONE Saif was once again the natural choice, not that we wanted to work with a top star. GGG needed a macho hero like Saif Ali Khan. He is the perfect choice for the role."
So did Saif say 'Yes' right away or did it take a while to be convinced? "While we were relating the script, Saif rolled out laughing," concludes DK!
Well, we are sure that GO GOA GONE is in very capable hands and we keenly await its release next year to witness the coming together of such talents.
