John Abraham, Aditi Rao Hydari, Rakul Preet Singh and Arjun Kapoor will be coming together for the first time for a cross-border love story, helmed by debut director Kaashvie Nair.
The film produced by Bhushan Kumar, Nikkhil Advani and John Abraham, has already gone on the floors a Mumbai’s Filmcity. Neena Gupta and Kanwaljit Singh are also a part of the project, according to Mumbai Mirror.
Abraham was cited in the publication saying, “When I heard the script, I instantly knew that this would be a special part, and when Kaashvie suggested I play it, it was difficult to refuse.”
Talking about Aditi’s character, Advani said, “There is a parallel between Arjun and Rakul’s characters in the present day and the forced break-up between John and Aditi’s characters in 1947 following the Partition. He plays a sardar for the first time.”
Aditi said, “John and I play a couple in 1946 –47 whose love story remains unfinished and unrequited till Arjun’s character feels the need to bring it to closure. Films like these are rarely made today, so I was quick to come on board.”
The film is yet to be titled.
