Kareena Kapoor Khan Teams  Up  With Sujoy Ghosh For Adaptation  Of  Keigo Huganshino’s Japanese novel  The Devotion Of Suspect X

Sujoy Ghosh wanted  to work with  Kareena Kapoor for the longest time. It’s finally  happening. Kareena Kapoor  has signed on the  dotted line  for Ghosh’s Devotion , the long-in-the-pipeline adaptation  of  Keigo Huganshino’s Japanese novel  The Devotion Of Suspect X.

Kareena Kapoor Khan  plays  a divorced  single mother who  murders  her  abusive ex-husband  and is then helped by her sympathetic neighbour(to be played by Jaideep Ahlawat) to dispose  of  the body.

Well, here’s to new beginnings!

It’s one that has all the right ingredients… a great story, a visionary director and a super talented cast and crew, I’m really looking forward to working with Sujoy, Jaideep, and Vijay. It’s the beginning of an electrifying  journey and I can’t wait for audiences worldwide to see this global bestseller book come to life.”
