The latest buzz in the industry is that actor Sidharth Malhotra will once again be teaming up with the production house that launched him, Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. Johar has apparently roped in Malhotra for the lead role in a film to be directed by Shakun Batra. The search is now on for an actor to play the parallel lead, with names such as Fawad Khan and Arjun Kapoor being speculated for the same.
“Sidharth’s dates are available from April onwards because ‘Bhavesh Joshi’ is now shelved. Arjun Kapoor and Fawad Khan are front-runners to play the parallel lead. Between the two, the part might go to the former, if negotiations work out,” a source informed DNA India.
The source also went on to add that the film centers around the story of two brothers, one of whom is homosexual. Alia Bhatt, who is a favourite with Dharma Productions, may be seen playing the female lead in the film.
