Kartik Aaryan conquered hearts after Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety emerged as one of the highest grossing Bollywood films this year.
Now, the latest buzz is that Kartik will be paired opposite Sara Ali Khan for Imtiaz Ali’s next film – which is expected to go on floors in February next year.
A media source reveals:
“It’s another unique love story, which will invariably have a slight travelogue flavour, like all Imtiaz films. He wanted a new actress opposite Kartik.
He had seen a few rushes of Kedarnath and felt Sara has a great screen presence and is good at delivering dialogues. He approached her with the script and the newbie liked the idea.”
The source adds, “They sat for narrations. Now, the star daughter, who has a strong role in the romantic drama, has finally given her nod.
The modalities are being worked out. She will start the film next year after both her movies — Kedarnath and Simmba — release next month,” the source informs.
Interestingly, Imtiaz has also worked with her dad, Saif Ali Khan, in Love Aaj Kal – 10 years ago. “When Saif got to know that the filmmaker has offered Sara a movie, he was happy.
He doesn’t make professional decisions for his daughter, but he feels the writer-director will tap into her potential. Sara’s mom, Amrita Singh, loved the story when she heard it,” adds the source.
Whilst these are just rumours, a final confirmation is expected.
