Mumbai – Abhishek Kapoor’s film Fitoor, which is a rendition of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations, is all set to release today on February 12. Starring Katrina Kaif and Aditya Roy Kapur in lead roles, we bring 5 reasons why this film is a must watch.
1- Zeb Bangash songs
Pakistani singer Zebunissa Bangash sang two songs for the film Fitoor. The first song titled Haminastu is a romantic Persian-Hindi number and has a surreal Kashmiri feel to it, pairing perfectly with the Abhishek Kapoor directorial which has been shot in Kashmir. Zeb’s second offering, Hone De Batiyaan, is a duet with Nandini Srikar, who previously ruled hearts with her song Dua from Shanghai, among many others.
2- Katrina Kaif in red locks
The highly talented and versatile actress Katrina Kaif will be seen for the first time in red locks. Recreating the mesmerizing moments in modern-day Kashmir, Katrina Kaif will be seen playing the role of Firdaus, who like a fairy tale beauty expresses her love for Noor (Aditya Roy Kapur).
3- Aditya Roy Kapur
After his love struck role in Aashiqui 2, Aditya Roy Kapur has come a long way. From his drop dead killer looks to his charming way to win the heart of Firdaus (Katrina Kaif), the actor is giving us million reasons to watch the film already.
After her outstanding acting in ‘Haider’, Tabu is back with a bang for her fans. The versatile and evergreen actress Tabu will be seen playing the role of elder Begum Hazrut in ‘Fitoor’. Moreover anything, Tabu replaced Rekha with this role and now we wait to catch if she can fit in the shoes of jilted lady.
5- Abhishek Kapoor’s direction
It’s one of the big and challenging tasks to recreate one of the most celebrated novels in English literature. Showcasing the legendary romance through the eyes of ‘Noor’ and ‘Firdaus’, we wait to see how well he succeeds to do so.
Fitoor is releasing over 60 plus screens across Pakistan by Distribution Club on 12th Feb, 2016.
