Reportedly, the Central Board of Certification (CBFC) ordered for as many as 73 cuts in writer-turned-director Akshat Verma’s film, post which the makers went to FCAT.

“I wouldn’t say that ‘Kaalakaandi’ is stuck. There were a lot of cuts [suggested by CBFC]. There is a government body of films called FCAT. Films that go there with a lot of cuts come out with no cuts or really less cuts,” said Khan. “Hopefully Kaalakaandi will come out with few cuts because it’s a lovely film and the process is still on. We think the trailer should come out after we know what the final cut is.”

Isha plays Rakhi, a photographer, in the film. “She is a smart, spontaneous girl,” reveals Isha, as she moves on to discuss the plot-line. “It revolves around a wedding where I meet Saif’s character. But do I play his love interest? You’ll get to know that only after you watch the film,” she says with a laugh.

Is it true that she will put her dancing skills on display in the film? “Oh yes, you’ll see me perform Kuchipudi. I shot for those scenes recently. I have been learning Kathak for the past five years, so doing Kuchipudi wasn’t really difficult. Plus, I had a trainer to help me out. I am excited that after five years, I’ll finally get to show my dancing skills on screen,” she signs off.

The actress also has a Telugu film, Sobhan Babu, opposite Rahul Ravindran in her kitty for which she’s currently shooting in Hyderabad. “It’s a rom-com helmed by Viplove.

He’s had just one release this year i.e. Rangoon, and the film didn’t fare well at the ticket counter. There are four months left in the calendar year and Saif Ali Khan has not one but three releases coming up – Kaalakaandi, Chef and Bazaar – which means the audience can look forward to seeing him in three different avatars. But now it seems they will have to wait.

Thanks to the censors, Kaalakaandi has been postponed and no one knows when the film will release. So, in all probability, Khan will have just two releases in the coming months. It will be interesting to see which of the two will release this year.

Two of Khan’s movies, Kaalakaandi and Chef are complete, while Bazaar is also almost complete. Hmm.

Both, Saif and Arjun’s, films would have had the same target audience — the multiplex crowd. |Daddy still had an edge over Kaalakaandi because it’s a commercial film. Saif’s film is a dark comedy, which is a niche genre.” So, Arjun’s going solo now.
