We had told you Arjun Kapoor was in talks for a film to be directed by Saurabh Shukla and produced by Nikkhil Advani. We can now confirm that the actor has signed on the dotted line, and he’s found a leading lady as well. The makers wanted a fresh pairing, so they approached Kriti Sanon for the heroine’s role. She has liked the script and committed to it, though she hasn’t signed it yet as the modalities are being worked out. Finally, after two misses, Kriti and Arjun have been cast together. Yes, Kriti and Arjun were in contention for the same film. Interestingly, both times, it was for Farzi. Raj and DK announced Farzi with Shahid Kapoor and Kriti. When Shahid left the film, they replaced him with Arjun. But the film was put on the back burner. They planned to revive it with Arjun and Kriti, earlier this year but then, Arjun walked out. So, this is the third time that Arjun and Kriti have been offered a film together. Like they say, third time’s the charm! (ALSO READ – Arjun Kapoor and Kriti Sanon to come together for Farzi?)
From what we hear. the film is a social drama with a strong message. Like Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, the makers plan to blend in content with great entertainment. While Kriti has the dates, Arjun’s diary is choc-a-bloc. However, he is committed to this one too. Currently, the actor is all set to begin Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, then Namastey Canada. So, this Nikhhil Advani venture will roll out only sometime mid next year after Arjun finishes work on both.
