Yash Raj Films launch Ishaqzade with Boney Kapoor's son Arjun Kapoor
In what marks the debut of another scion of Mumbai filmdom, Yash Raj Films have launched their new film Ishaqzaade with filmmaker Boney Kapoor's son Arjun Kapoor in the lead opposite Parineeti Chopra.
The film will be written and directed by Habib Faisal (who directed the National Award winning film Do Dooni Char and wrote the highly acclaimed Band Baaja Baarat) and produced by Aditya Chopra.
Shooting has started from today and the movie is scheduled for a May 2012 release, a spokesperson for Yash Raj Films said.
Set in "the often unrealistic and daunting political confines of rural India", Ishaqzaade, sources in Yash Raj Films say, is "the love story of a passion ignited by hatred, rising from the ashes of hooliganism and small town clan wars."
According to them, Ishaqzaade is the "love story of two people who are born to hate but destined to love."
