The suspense is out. Ever since it was announced that Rajkumar Santoshi would be making a film with Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol, one wondered about its genre. It was presumed that this film may turn out to be a dramatic affair since it is one genre that Santoshi excels in. However, now it has been revealed that the film would be an out and out comedy.


'This film would be on the same lines of AJAB PREM KI GHAZAB KAHANI,' informs a source. 'However it isn't the sequel of the Ranbir Kapoor - Katrina Kaif starrer that Santoshi was planning earlier; this one is an altogether different film. It is going to be a riotous fun affair,' the source added.

Sonam had acted in only one out and out comedy film so far, THANK YOU. And ironically in that film she had the most serious part even though Rimi Sen and Celina Jaitley had some uproarious scenes.

CHECK OUT: Sonam is 'special' for Farhan and Rakeysh

'In this film Sonam would be able to bring out her comic side. She has done too many serious films of late (MAUSAM and DELHI 6 to name a few). After an action outing like PLAYERS, she now wants to explore the comic genre with this new film. Also with Abhay in the midst of affairs, it is going to be one 'different' outing for sure. After all, Abhay's straight faced comic act has won him quite a few accolades in ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA as well,' the source adds.

Now the million dollar question that arises is whether the film will go on floors soon. After all, in the past there have been a couple of films announced by Rajkumar Santoshi that failed to take off, most notably POWER (which incidentally was supposed to feature Anil Kapoor).

'This one is happening for sure. In fact as we talk, logistics are being finalised for the film. It would go on floors in the next couple of months,' the source reassures.
