After walking the runway for prodigious fashion designer Manish Malhotra’s Summer Couture 2018 line in Singapore, Kartik Aaryan and Kareena Kapoor Khan are said to be joining hands for Karan Johar’s next big-ticket movie. However, the duo will not be playing a couple in the movie. Reportedly, Karthik will be paired opposite newcomer Janhvi Kapoor who is making her acting debut with KJo’s ‘Dhadak’, scheduled to release on 20th July 2018.
According to reports, Kartik and Janhvi will play the second lead pair in the untitled film, while Kareena Kapoor Khan has been roped in to headline the project as the female lead. KJo is currently looking for the lead actor opposite her in the movie. Earlier, Johar’s favourite student Sidharth Malhotra was in talks to star opposite Bebo in the movie but then reports came in that the filmmaker was not so keen to cast the actor as he felt that he was not the perfect match for Kareena in the movie.
Sidharth Malhotra, who forayed into Bollywood with Karan Johar’s superhit film ‘Student Of The Year’ (2012), is going through a rough phase as far as his career in films is concerned. His last few films such ‘Aiyaary’ (2018), ‘Ittefaq’ (2017) and ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ (2016) failed miserably at the cash counter despite being backed by big banners, denting his brand image badly. However, the good news for the actor is that he has two plum projects in hand –Dharma Productions’ ‘Sher Shah: Captain Vikram Batra Biopic’ and Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Shotgun Shaadi’.
We hope his upcoming projects help him revive his falling career in Hindi cinema.
