Kriti Sanon, who started off in movies with Sajid Nadiadwala’s smash hit ‘Heropanti’ (2014) opposite Tiger Shroff, has been touching new heights with each new film of hers. Her last release ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ (2017) was a huge success at the box-office, which helped her cement her position in the industry more firmly. Post ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, the actress has signed a number of plum projects such as ‘Arjun Patiala’, ‘Panipat’, ‘Womaniya’, ‘Housefull 4’ and the most recent one being ‘Luka Chuppi’. The latest we hear that Kriti is about to add one more project to her kitty.
According to reports, filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari, who shot to fame after the massive success of ‘Dangal’ (2016), has zeroed in on Sanon as the female lead of his next directorial venture, which is still untitled. Sushant Singh Rajput plays the male lead in the movie, with whom Kriti worked on Dinesh Vijan’s ‘Raabta’ (2017). Though ‘Raabta’ was a dud, the audience loved the crackling chemistry between Singh and Sanon.
“While the filmmaker was in talks with a few actors for the part, he was keen on Kriti – he was impressed with her performance in ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, which was written by him. The two met recently to discuss the project. Kriti is quite excited about the script. It’s in the final stages of discussion, but she is yet to sign on the dotted line. One can expect the final announcement later this month,” a source lets on.
Meanwhile, Kriti is busy with Dinesh Vijan’s upcoming film ‘Arjun Patiala’ wherein she is paired opposite Diljit Dosanjh. After that, she will begin shooting for Sajid Khan’s multi-starrer ‘Housefull 4’, the next instalment of the ‘Housefull’ (2010) series, which also stars Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol, Riteish Deshmukh, Sanjay Dutt, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde in significant roles.
