Mumbai: Buzz is that Shahid Kapoor is more than involved in Kunal Kohli's upcoming film. According to rumours, Shahid Kapoor(SK), who has always expressed a desire to get into direction, is taking his dream a bit too seriously with Kunal Kohli's next film.

According to sources, the actor gives a lot of inputs in the film, tentatively titled ‘Janam Janam Ka Saath Hai Hamara Tumhara’.

The movie is a period love story set across three generations and stars SK opposite ex flame Priyanka Chopra. The pair is coming together for the first time for this project after ‘Kaminey’.

In control

A highly placed source on the set revealed, "Shahid has more or less taken the reins from director Kunal Kohli's hands. He sometimes also calls the shots on important matters like where to shoot and how to shoot a particular scene."

The source informs that the actor has also contributed a lot to the script.

"Kunal wanted to shoot the first schedule in London but Shahid requested him to shoot in Mumbai first. So the director gave in.SK wanted to shoot the first schedule in the city, so that he is available to finish some patchwork for ‘Mausam’ his dad's film," the source adds.

Working in tandem

A friend of the actor explains, "Every big star gives inputs in his film, it doesn't mean they are ghost directing it. The actor and the director work as a team and consult each other."

While the Kapoor lad remained available for comment, when asked if he is doing most of the direction, Kunal quipped sarcastically, " And I am acting in the film."
