Film­maker, Sai Kabir (left) is on a roll th­ese days. The Re­volver Rani (2014) di­rec­tor, who has also writ­ten the screen­play for Kis­mat Kon­nec­tion (2008) and Shau­keens (2014), is work­ing on two scripts, which he plans to start shoot­ing this year. While, the first one stars ac­tor Ir­rfan, for the sec­ond, Kabir plans to cast new­com­ers. Kabir says, “Divine Lovers is a black com­edy. I’ve been work­ing on the script for some time now and have just fin­ished the fi­nal draft. We have locked the script af­ter a nar­ra­tion with Ir­rfan bhai. The sec­ond film that I’m work­ing on is ten­ta­tively ti­tled Trip. It’s go­ing to be a youth-based film that I am plan­ning to shoot dur­ing sum­mer time in Delhi.” Kabir was re­cently in Delhi for his brother, Vikram Sa­hai’s pre-wed­ding prepa­ra­tion. Dur­ing the pe­riod, the film­maker also got a chance to do recce for his film. Mean­while, he shares that he has al­ready started au­di­tion­ing for Trip and that he’s look­ing for peo­ple with merit.

“It’s a story about a group of friends, who be­long to the up­per mid­dle class and rich bracket. It’s not a dark film, but it’s cer­tainly iron­i­cal. Given that it has a fresh cast­ing, I was wor­ried about whether I will be able to find pro­duc­ers for the same. But I am thank­ful to have my friend Arun Tyagi, who is back­ing my film. It’s im­por­tant to have the right kind of pro­ducer who sup­ports your vi­sion,” says Kabir.
