Akshay Kumar`s `Gutka` to have taste of drama

Mumbai: Filmmaker Punit Malhotra, who has been associated with Bollywood love stories, says his next film `Gutka` starring Akshay Kumar will be completely different from his past projects and will be in the drama space.

"I am making a drama...my next film `Gutka`. Akshay plays the lead in the film. It`s a drama and it`s a completely different film from what I have made earlier," Malhotra said.

Without divulging more about the project, he added: "It`s too early to talk about it. We have to lock the script and then it will go on the floors. We haven`t finalized the leading actress yet."

The director, who made his debut with `I Hate Luv Storys`, is currently busy promoting his second film `Gori Tere Pyaar Mein` which stars Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor.

An unusual pair, isn`t it?

"In the film, it is nicely established that Kareena is elder to Imran. They are an unusual pair. I wanted to work with Imran again (after `I Hate Luv Storys`) and the film was written keeping him in mind. As far as the girl in the film is concerned, only Kareena could have pulled off this role," he said.

`Gori Tere Pyaar Mein` is a romantic-comedy which explores romance between a party lover and high-on-life man played by Imran and a social worker portrayed by Kareena.

The film releases Nov 22.
