Shriya Saran signed for ‘Komagata Maru’
Acclaimed director Deepa Mehta, who is currently busy with the promotion of ‘Videsh’ in India has signed Shriya Saran for her next film ‘Komagata Maru’. The film in which Akshay Kumar is playing the male lead is about the journey of an ill fated ship, which sets out on its voyage from India to Vancover. Shriya will be playing the younger of the only two female passengers who are on board the ship.
Very few people know that Akshay was the first choice of Deepa Mehta for the role which was played by John Abraham in ‘Water’. This was when Deepa was making the movie with Shabana Azmi and Nandita Das. But the film ran into a lot of controversies in Benaras which forced the director to abandon the film then but not give up on it. A few years later, she shot the movie in Sri Lanka with a different cast.
Nevertheless, Akshay and Deepa finally come together with ‘Komagata Maru’, the shooting of which is expected to begin in Septembet this year. After this, Deepa has her sights set on Salman Rushdie’s Midnight Children.
