Fresh pair alert: Kriti Sanon opposite Aditya Roy Kapur in Mohit Suri’s next – Last year, there were rumours that Kriti Sanon and Aditya Roy Kapur were teaming up for a film. That didn’t materialise but it seems 2018 will indeed witness their fresh pairing on screen. Buzz is that the two actors will mostly be paired opposite each other in Mohit Suri’s next.
ADITYA CAME ON BOARD FIRST
After Hrs was the first to report that the director-producer had locked Aditya for his film. The two were spotted having several meetings at his office. Our source tells us, “Aditya has not had a release in the last one year after OK Jaanu. He wanted to try out something he’s never done before. He was Mohit’s first choice because they are great friends.”
KRITI IT IS!
Now, the filmmaker wants Kriti as the leading lady. “They met a couple of times and Kriti and her team have verbally given the nod to the film. But they are yet to lock the dates and sign on the dotted line,” our khabri reveals. The actress, who has ‘liked the idea’ of the movie, had okayed it months ago but there was no progress on the project for a while. Now, it’s finally on track. The final round of modalities needs to be worked on. “Kriti will give her dates once she’s back from Chandigarh where she’s shooting for another film. Mohit’s venture should roll in the next few months,” says our source.
While speculations have been rife that it’s a love story, our source informs us, “It’s an edgy romantic thriller. It was an idea that Mohit was toying with for quite some time and he has finally cracked the script.”
Apart from Kriti and Aditya, the film will feature another male lead too. “It’s a love triangle between a girl and two boys. The hunt for the other male lead is on. They have also spoken to a few young actors and once they get a confirmation, they will announce the film,” adds our source.
