On 23rd June, Sajid Nadiadwala announced his upcoming ambitious project which is a modern day epic musical romance named Satyanarayan ki Katha. For the main lead in the movie, Sajid finalised bollywood actor Kartik Aaryan who has been all over the Internet for walking out of several projects. Everyone was left confused about the leading lady in the magnum opus.
According to latest updates, Kartik has now found his leading lady for the film. The female lead is none other than Shraddha Kapoor. Sources said that the makers have already narrated the idea to the actress and she has loved it.
A source revealed, “Sajid Nadiadwala has already bounced the idea to his in-house favourite Shraddha Kapoor and she has absolutely loved it. In fact, she has also agreed to be a part of the film. But it’s all verbal at this point and a contractual agreement is currently not in place. Shraddha seems like a perfect choice because the new pairing will also add freshness to the script. Kartik and Shraddha will look extremely good together and although it’s Kartik’s story majorly, Shraddha has a very important part to play in it as well.”
So far, no official announcement has been made but seems like it will be made official soon.
Satyanarayan ki Katha will mark the first collaboration of Shraddha and Kartik. However, this is not the first time, when both the actors were offered the same project. Earlier, Dinesh Vijan had approached the two actors for a film. Apart from that, there were rumours that they were featuring in Kirik Party. But none of it has been finalised yet. In fact, before Kartik shot to fame, he was also offered the supporting lead in Batti Gul Meter chalu, which of course he had turned down then.
Kartik will be next seen in Anees Bazmee’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 opposite Kiara Advani. Shraddha on the other hand will feature in Luv Ranjan’s untitled film.
