Buzz is that Shahid Kapoor wants rumoured former flame Bipasha Basu to play lead in the remake of Tom Cruise starrer

After a year since news of a desi version of the Tom Crusie starrer Knight and Day made the rounds, it looks likely that the film will go on floor soon.

Leading man Shahid Kapoor has apparently not only ensured that the film takes off, but is also said to be recommending Bipasha Basu's name to play female lead.

Speaking on the film to be directed by Siddharth Raj Anand, our source says, "Although Shahid and Bipasha have worked together some years ago — in Mathew Matthan's Shikhar — they not only became good friends early last year, but were also said to be dating.

While they're believed to have broken up after the release of Mausam, it seems they remained friends. Shahid strongly recommended her name to Siddharth."

Speaking about Shahid's role in reviving the film, our source points out, "It has been reported that the Indian division of the Hollywood studio had signed on Siddharth to remake the original toplining Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz.



However, the film had been put on hold as Siddharth was supposed to make another film with Shahid for Ramesh Taurani, " adding that Sasha now has plenty of dates available as he is currently only committed to Maneesh Sharma's next.

The source adds that the actor and the director have been catching up with each other a lot lately, in and around Versova. Siddharth denied the story saying he's still scripting the film.

"Only after I finish writing can we figure out the casting, " he stated.

As for being spotted often with Shahid and recently also with Bipasha, he maintained, "We're friends and would like to work together if there's a suitable subject. Otherwise, just hanging around doesn't mean we are doing a film together."
