Farhan Akhtar and Disha Patani to come together in ‘Honeymoon’? – That’s the tentative cast and title for Ashutosh Gowariker’s next
Farhan Akhtar and Disha Patani
Ashutosh Gowariker has moved on from the Mohenjo Daro debacle and understandably, his next directorial, which stars Farhan Akhtar, is not a period film.
Says a source, “Ashutosh’s next film is a thriller about a newlywed couple. It’s a performance-driven film. The makers have zeroed in on a title already. They plan to call it Honeymoon. The film is slated to go on floors soon, sans the film’s leading lady, if need be.”
Ashu has already approached Disha Patani to star opposite Farhan. “He loved her in MS Dhoni and feels she has an amazing screen presence. Talks are on at an advanced stage with the actress for the film. Ashu and his team met Disha and her team and discussed the project recently. The actress has liked the script, but the modalities are being worked out.”
But there’s a problem, of late.” Disha has caught the fancy of several banners, but she is opting out of most big projects as she is waiting for Dharma’s Student Of The Year 2, which she thinks will happen soon. She has definitely spoken to Ashu, but not signed the film yet,” adds our khabri. In case she does, there will be another fresh pairing for the audiences.
