New Delhi: Fresh from the success of his new movie Kai Po Che, director Abhishek Kapoor has been signed for another film, which will be produced under the banner of UTV Motion Pictures.
The deal was signed on Friday, when Kai Po Che, which is based on Chetan Bhagat's novel 'The 3 Mistakes Of My Life', hit the screens.
Siddharth Roy Kapur, the managing director of Studios, Disney UTV, said, "With Kai Po Che, Abhishek has managed to marry commercial success with critical acclaim seamlessly. We are thrilled to be collaborating with him on another film and look forward to many more in the future."
He also said, Abhishek Kapoor is an incredibly gifted filmmaker. His clarity of vision as a storyteller and his ability to faithfully translate that vision from script to celluloid is remarkable.
Abhishek, who is excited to team up with UTV Motion Pictures again, said, "It is only natural, and a real pleasure to extend this bond going forward. Kai Po Che has been a satisfying and successful experience, and true to its spirit, UTV and I are taking the next step (a major leap, in fact) to partnering together for love of the craft and cementing our relationship."
Kai Po Che (KPC) is Abhishek's third film, after Aryan and Rock on, as a director. The movie stars Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh and Raj Kumar Yadav in key roles. The movie had a 65 percent opening in morning shows across the country on Friday, and the numbers are said to have increased to 80 to 100 percent across India by Friday evening.
