Director Siddharth Malhotra is all set for a comeback after a four-year gap since ‘We Are Family’ in 2010. However, this time, he’s going to be returning as an independent producer and BizAsia has learnt that he’s not far from signing Bipasha Basu for the female lead role in his film.
Apparently, Malhotra has roped in Partho Mitra as first-time director after his TV stints. Talking about Basu’s involvement, Malhotra spoke to Mumbai Mirror and said, “Bipasha has expressed interest in the project. A final narration is still due but within the next few days, we will have a clearer picture.”
A source further stated, “His next directorial venture will be produced by Eros. Currently, he is working on a script which should be locked in a week’s time. By the end of March, the casting of his film will also be finalised.”
