Mumbai: Diljit Dosanjh’s recent film Soorma has earned quite a lot of praise from audience as well as critics. Looks like director Karan Johar too has been impressed with his work, as he is said to have signed the actor for his next directorial project.
“The team has been in talks with a few actors for this film. Some of the young actors were considered to play young couple in the film and Kiara was one of them. Since Kiara has worked with Karan and has also become good friends with Manish Malhotra, there are strong chances that she might feature in this film. Apart from her, Diljit too has been considered for the role, as his last few films have done well at the box office. They both fit the bill and Karan might finalise them for the characters which he has in his film,” says a source.
Reports suggest that Kareena Kapoor Khan and Akshay Kumar have been signed on to play lead in the film and makers were looking for other actors to play a couple in it. There was a buzz that Bhumi Pednekar and Rajkummar Rao have been offered this film but there was no confirmation on that. Karan too has been denying reports of casting any actors for his film which he plans to start next year.
