Director Imtiaz Ali had recently announced that he has developed a series of scripts and would like to make them under his production banner Window Seat Films LLP.
Now we hear that Imtiaz has signed Kartik Aaryaan in the lead role for the film, which is touted to be his next oeuvre after the failure of his Shah Rukh Khan Anushka Sharma starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal.
“Kartik has just finished the shoot of Luka Chhupi and is also slated to shoot for the Hindi remake of Kirik Party/Kirrak Party (Kannada/Telugu). The final bound script of the film is taking some time in the making and the makers, Dheeraj Wadhavan and Ajay Kapoor want the script of the Abhishek Jain directed film to be perfect before they lock in on the shooting dates. So, it has been delayed by a couple of months,” says a source.
Kartik is expected to feature in Imtiaz’s film after he wraps up the remake. The actor’s last release Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety that crossed the 100 crore mark has been a hot favorite among producers. But a couple of announcements for him have ended up as false starts. Hopefully, this one won’t.
