After keeping a life-long mannat for Kajol agreeing to do his first film, Siddharth has now gone a step further. He has postponed his next film with Kajol in the lead because of the actress’ impending motherhood.
Kajol intends to take at least one full year off before returning to acting. Rather than cast someone else in the role that was written especially for Kajol, Siddharth has now decided to make another film next.
The director’s next would be a father-daughter family-comedy featuring Rishi Kapoor as the father. The daughter is yet to be cast. But the buzz is that Siddharth wants to create cinematic history by casting Rishi’s niece Kareena as his daughter.
