“Karan recently went to New York to work on the script and is going to soon make an official announcement on his upcoming film. While he has offered Kareena Kapoor Khan and Akshay Kumar to play one of the couples in the film, he is still looking for another set of actors to play second couple in the film. Initially, he wanted Jhanvi Kapoor and Kartik Aryan to be part of it but looks like Rajkummar Rao might be part of this film instead of Kartik,” says a source.
A few days ago, it was reported that Kartik who was supposed to featured with Kareena in Karan’s film, may not bag the project, and latest buzz suggests that Rao will step into this film as he fits the bill perfectly.
