Abhishek Kapoor On The Journey To Kedarnath

Filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor whose last film Fitoor sank without a trace is  in no mood to compromise.

He  now brings together Sushant Singh Rajput whose journey  into big-screen stardom began with Kapoor’s  Kai Po Che, and Amrita Singh-Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara Khan in a love story set in the pilgrim spot of Kedarnath.

“It is  important for me to do something different each time. Kedarnath is a different world altogether  from Kai Po Che and Rock On. I’d rather do  something new and fail than attempt the familiar and  succeed,” says Abhishek, unwilling to  reveal much about his film except that it’s set in the pilgrim spot in the Kashmir Valley.

Now, why hasn’t anyone thought  of making a film set in that area before?

Laughs Abhishek, “I don’t know. We all visit  Kedarnath so often. I’ve been many times. The place is bustling with stories to tell.”

Kedaranath reunites Abhishek Kapoor with his Kai Po Che leading man Sushant Singh Rajput. The two are said to have had a fall-out after their first collaboration when Sushant chose to do ShekharKapoor’s Paani(which eventually  got shelved) over Abhishek Kapoor’s Fitoor(which eventually flopped).

Says Abhishek, “Sushant  is going all-out to  prepare for his role. As for Sara she is going to surprise everybody. We start shooting in September  in and around the Kedarnath route.”
