Arjun Kapoor and Rakul Preet will star in an untitled family dramedy, which will be directed by debutante Kaashvie Nair, daughter of filmmaker Shashilal K Nair.
Kaashvie and her team have completed the recce and are in the final stages of preparation. The film will be co-produced by Nikkhil Advani, Bhushan Kumar, and John Abraham and go on floors this month.
Speaking about the story, Nikkhil says, “It is a coming-of-age, cross-border love story, beautifully written by Anuja Chauhan, Amitosh Nagpal, and Kaashvie. It will be shot extensively in Punjab and Los Angeles and will feature Arjun and Rakul in never-seen-before avatars. We will be locking the title and the release date soon.”
Arjun says he was hooked to the script on the first narration. “I have grown up in a joint family so I understood that it’s the biggest pillar of love, strength and support. That’s the essence of our film, which has its heart in the right place. I’m having a blast even during the prep.”
While Rakul Preet will next be seen in Marjaavan, Arjun awaits the release of Ashutosh Gowariker's Panipat, in which he portrays Maratha warrior Sadashivrao Bhau.
