Few days ago, we had reported that acclaimed writer-director Kabir Khan had finalized Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor for his next film titled ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’.
Now, we hear that the ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ director has locked the script of his film that will go on floors after ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’. And if sources are to believed, Kabir has roped in none-other-than Hrithik Roshan for the film.
The yet-to-be-titled film will be a passionate love story set against a historical and political backdrop.
According to sources, Kabir and Hrithik met a few weeks ago and discussed about the film. Hrithik liked the script and gave his dates to the director for 2015.
“He loved the script and has given the nod to the film since he hasn’t done a love story in a while. Kabir finalised Bajrangi Bhaijaan while he was shooting Phantom and now he’s finalised Hrithik for this as-yet-untitled film” a source revealed.
The lead actress of the film hasn’t been decided at this moment but Deepika Padukone is the leading contender to romance Hrithik for the very first time.
The film will be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under his home production ‘Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment’. It will go on floors in July 2015.
The official announcement, along with the tentative release date, is likely to be made soon.
