Bollywood : Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sidharth Malhotra to star in a Karan Johar production

The recent unfavourable box office reports of his films notwithstanding, Sidharth Malhotra still seems to attract the producers thanks to his popularity and his onscreen persona. Hence, Sidharth has just been signed for a new big project: the biopic of Captain “Sher Shah” Vikram Batra which will be co-produced by Karan Johar and Shabbir Boxwalla.

The film will be directed by Vishnu Varadhan whose filmography boasts of several major box office bonanzas in the South industry such as Billa in 2008 or Arrabam in 2013. The screenplay will be handled by Sandeep Srivastava, the genius behind the critically acclaimed thriller script Ab Tak Chappan in 2004 or New York in 2009. For Sid’s sake, let’s hope this promising project is as good as it appears to be! Captain Vikram Batra was made a war hero for intercepting many Pakistani messages in the late 90s. Since he is a well-known personality, his story may well attract the public in huge numbers, particularly because lately, themes of homeland and war are very much in vogue.

Now since a project never arrives alone, it seems that Sidharth Malhotra has signed another film for his mentor Karan Johar of Dharma Productions! The film in question would include, in its casting, another recurring figure of Karan Johar’s productions: Kareena Kapoor Khan. Anther actor to join the main cast : Kartik Aryan. After Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’s unexpected triumph at the beginning of this year, the actor finally got a first major role in a film financed by a big production banner. Raj Mehta will be the director of the movie. Mehta was an assistant director on Kapoor & Sons, Badrinath Ki Dulhania and, Jhanvi Kapoor’s debut film Dhadhak which has not yet come to the silver screen.

I just finished shooting this beautiful iconic 1990s song “Dilbar” with John Abraham! I’m so excited guys! I have a feeling you are going to love this one. Blessed.” She also stated, “Doing a remake of an iconic song is always nerve-racking because you never know if you can actually do justice to it. Sushmita Sen was iconic in the song and I hope I match up to her. I’m so lucky to have got this chance and thankful that Nikkhil Advani sir, Bhushan Kumar sir and Milap Zaveri sir trusted me to be able to do a song like this. The take on the song is very unique and different. It’s going to be one of the most visually stunning songs, with amazing hypnotizing dance moves I am sure this song will become a rage with the audiences”.
