The former wife of Imran Khan, Jemima Goldsmith, is set to produce her first romantic-comedy movie under the banner of her Instinct Production.
She is collaborating with famous Indian director, Shekhar Kapur, known for directing blockbuster movies, Dil Se and Mr.India. Gupta is making his comeback after his 2007 Oscar-winning production, Elizabeth: The Golden Age.
The movie stars Lily James, Shahzad Latif, and Emma Thompson. The movie is set between London and South Asia, the theme follows the conflict of cross-culture love and marriage, reported media outlet Deadline.
Both Khan and Latif have family ties to Pakistan. Khan was married to Pakistani former cricket icon and current premier of Pakistan, Imran Khan. Perhaps, the movie will echo her life experiences. In fact, Khan has written the script of the movie.
The movie will hit the floors next month. Khan is ramping up her TV work. Being a former journalist, Khan has produced work credits for 2019 Emmy-nominated The Case Against Adnan Syed, her 2018 drama The Clinton Affair, and American Crime Story.
Studiocanal will fully finance the film and launch sales at this week’s virtual AFM.
Khan shared the news on her official Twitter account as well. She shared a link to a tweet that read: “Love Story: Filmmaker @shekharkapur @Working_Title @StudiocanalUK sign #LilyJames & @shazad to star in romance film What’s Love Got To Do With It based on a script by @Jemima_Khan #EmmaThompson co-stars.
