We said last year that Siddharth Roy Kapur and Aamir Khan will collaborate in future and now it has come true.
The ex MD of the Indian division of the Walt Disney group that also owns UTV Motion pictures has floated his banner RKF announcing three films including one with Aamir Khan.
SIDDHARTH ROY KAPUR AND AAMIR KHAN
The first will be the reported biopic on astronaut Rakesh Sharma starring Aamir Khan in lead to be jointly produced with Aamir Khan. Directed by Mahesh Mathai, the movie will begin its shoot by early 2018.
The second film under RKF is also a biopic of a man by the name Vijendra Singh who lost his wife Leela in the Uttarakhand floods. Leela was presumed dead, but Vijendra never lost hope and after 19 months Leela was found after a long search across 1000 villages as per reports.
It is learnt that Siddharth has got the rights of this story which he feels is quite powerful and motivating.
The third film under Siddharth’s new banner will be based on a book. The movie will essay the journey of the enterprising youngster Varun Agarwal – the entrepreneur, film maker and author who co-founded Alma Mater, penned ‘How I Braved Anu Aunty and also co –founded A Million Dollar Company.
Varun’s Alma Mater collaborated with educational institutions across India to make and supply customized sweatshirts to the alumni. This unique motivational tale will be helmed by DANGAL fame Nitesh Tiwari.
Siddharth Roy Kapur had an eventful and successful stint with Disney UTV, we congratulate him on his new journey and wish him all the very best.
