After donning the author’s hat, Kareena Kapoor Khan is all set to make her debut as a producer with director Hansal Mehta’s yet-to-be-titled thriller. She will also act in the film, while Ekta Kapoor will be a co-producer.

The ‘Jab We Met’ star said: “Very honoured and excited to work as a producer on this film with Ekta whom my family has known for years and of course to be directed by Hansal for the first time. I am a huge fan of Hansal’s films and to be working with him for the first time will be special. There are a lot of firsts on this film and I cannot wait to begin this journey.”

Ekta of Balaji Telefilms also expressed her happiness over collaborating with Kareena and Mehta.

“Kareena Kapoor Khan is a dynamite combination of star power and talent. We last worked together on ‘Veere Di Wedding’ which was probably the biggest hit headlined by a female star. The second time’s always a charm and I’m confident this one too will excite the audiences. To have Hansal Mehta, one of the most prolific filmmakers of our times tell this story makes it all the more exciting! Get ready for one of the most intriguing and shocking mainstream films thus far,” she said.

According to Mehta, the aim of the team is “to create a fresh, gripping and moody thriller”.

“I am hoping will do justice to her immense talent as an actor. I look forward to venturing on this journey with Ekta and Kareena, both of whom have accomplished so much in their respective careers and are absolute powerhouses,” he added.

Inspired by a true-life incident, the film is set in the UK and is scheduled to go into production soon.
