Abhishek Kapoor’s Fitoor, the Indian adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations was kicked off in Kashmir yesterday.
Aditya Roy Kapur, who has replaced Sushant Singh as the protagonist. Rekha, who plays a desi Miss Havisham, joins the unit this weekend. Katrina, who plays the romantic lead, will be juggling Fitoor with a three month-long schedule of Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos starring beau Ranbir Kapoor.
Gattu says, “Kashmir has been my muse, it’s synonymous with love and symbolises the many facets of the ever-changing emotion. The film will be shot in evergreen locales like the Dal Lake and Pahalgam. I am thrilled to be here,” he states.
