MUMBAI: Kriti Sanon and Sushant Singh Rajput set tongues wagging with their sizzling chemistry in Dinesh Vijan’s Raabta. Now, if the recent buzz is to be believed, Kriti and Sushant might be seen together once again in Nitesh Tiwari’s upcoming student drama. It is being said that Sushant has already been roped in for the film but for the female protagonist’s role, the makers have zeroed in on Kriti. A source close to the development told Mumbai Mirror that the Dangal director was keen to have Kriti on the board after watching her performance in Bareilly Ki Barfi.
The leading daily quoted an insider, as saying, “While the filmmaker was in talks with a few actors for the part, he was keen on Kriti – he was impressed with her performance in Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017), which was written by him.
Another source close to Kriti revealed that she is trying to work out the dates for the film. The source said, “Kriti is scheduled to leave for London for the shoot of Housefull 4 this month, post which she will begin work on Ashutosh Gowariker’s Panipat. She is trying to accommodate Nitesh’s project between two schedules of Panipat. Sushant, too, needs to film a substantial chunk of The Fault In Our Stars (2014) remake before kicking off this movie. If everything works out, the film may roll in December.” There are also speculations that the Fukrey actor Varun Sharma might also be seen in the film. The upcoming film is likely to hit theatres late next year.
