Zoya Akhtar, the director-producer, is working on a new film. She appears to have finalised the cast for her upcoming project. She found the female lead in Ananya Panday a few months ago, and now she has found the male leads in Siddhant Chaturvedi and Adarsh Gourav.
There isn’t much information about the film’s genre or characters available at this time. Siddhant has previously worked with Zoya in Gully Boy, but Ananya and Adarsh will be appearing in her production for the first time. The film will go on floors early next year.
Siddhant and Adarsh had both previously been breakout stars in their respective films. After the release of Gully Boy, Siddhant had become an overnight sensation. Meanwhile, for his portrayal in The White Tiger, Adarsh was nominated for a BAFTA Award. The crime drama was based on Aravind Adiga’s book of the same name.
Meanwhile, Siddhant and Ananya will appear alongside Deepika Padukone in Shakun Batra’s upcoming film. Dharma Productions will bankroll the movie.
