Sonam and Rhea Kapoor in Walt Disney movie Khoobsurat

Yes, it is official; Walt Disney Studios have announced that their next movie “Khoobsurat” is going to be a hearty family entertainer, starring the Bollywood beauty ‘Sonam Kapoor’. Studios further confirmed the long rumored association with Bollywood actor turned Producer ‘Anil Kapoor’ and his other daughter (also the co-producer) Rhea Kapoor.

Disney India will produce the movie in association with the father-daughter duo, directed by the ace Ad-film Director Shashank Ghosh. The movie is a remake of the 1980 movie also named, ‘Khoobsurat’ that starred Rekha in lead role.

“A delightful film, I believe that Khoobsurat will be entertainment with a heart. We are also looking forward to working with Anil Kapoor Film Company on this lovely film,” Rucha Pathak, Senior Creative Director, Disney Studios.
