Kambakkht Ishq is a forthcoming Indian Bollywood film directed by Sabbir Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. The film, a remake of the 2002 Tamil film Pammal K. Sambandam, will feature Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor in pivotal roles along with actors Aftab Shivdasani and Amrita Arora in supporting roles. Hollywood actors Sylvester Stallone, Denise Richards and Brandon Routh will be appearing in cameos, reportedly playing themselves. Originally scheduled to release in December 2008, the film was postponed due to extensive production work and is now slated for a release on July 3, 2009.
Kambakkht Ishq explores the relationship between two individuals as different from each other as chalk and cheese. No matter how many times they are pushed together, there are only fireworks... no fire. Viraj Shergill (Akshay Kumar) is a swashbuckling stuntman in Hollywood who believes that women are only good for two things: "making love" & "making love". Simrita Rai (Kareena Kapoor) is a firebrand who is more than able to stare down the most arrogant male with her caustic wit and sardonic tongue. She firmly believes that there is no such thing as love.
So what happens when the two people who hate each other the most meet at Simrita's best friend Kamini's (Amrita Arora) and Viraj's brother Lucky's (Aftab Shivdasani) wedding? The result is a wedding that both Viraj and Simrita are violently opposed to and desperate to stop. Sparks fly, accidents occur, and both are thrown together in the most absurd, hilarious situation until one dramatic twist of fate binds the two together in a manner that they could have never ever even dreamed of in their wildest fantasies.
"Frankly, the film was not just a journey for Akshay kumar but a roller coaster ride. There are so many big and known names who are a part of the film. Moreover, what's even better is that each of the aforementioned names are essential part of the film.
Now that KAMBAKKHT ISHQ is round the corner, audiences are looking forward to Akshay Kumar in the act once again. After some buffoonery at show in CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA, Akshay Kumar went through an image change once again in 8X10 TASVEER where he attempted (and succeeded well as well) in giving a serious account of himself. However, with KAMBAKKHT ISHQ he is back to his street-smart ways, something that worked quite well for him in movies like SINGH IS KINNG, TASHAN, BHOOL BHULAIYAA, HEYY BABYY and many more. Guess he is back to carrying on with his most successful image, right?
