Rhea Kapoor who recently announced sequel of her hit movie Veere Di Wedding starring her sister Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, seems to have finalised yet another film. This time she plans to sign not her sister but her brother Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor along with Alaya F.
After successful films like Aisha (2010), Khoobsurat (2014) and Veere Di Wedding (2018), Rhea Kapoor has locked another script. She loved the story of the forthcoming romcom. Bhavesh Joshi fame Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor and Jawaani Jaaneman actress Alaya F will reportedly be collaborating for Rhea’s upcoming project.
An insider informed, “Rhea loved this script which is a rom-com but more in the comedy space. Harsh is brilliant with his comic timing and everyone loved his scene in AK vs AK. Usually, he has done serious cinema so Rhea felt this film will be a perfect breakaway from his image and also help him be more commercial viable. Harsh has liked the script.” (Bollywood Hungama)

The source further added, “Rhea loves Alaya F and feels she is better than every other young actor today. She took the film to Alaya who loved the whole idea and the role. It is a matter of time when they go on the floors with it.”
Incidentally, few weeks back Harsh Varrdhan expressed his desire to collaborate with Alaya and showered praises on her. He told Zoom during an interview, “She is very hard working. I don’t think I have ever met someone as dedicated and eager to improve every day. I am very proud of her and hope to work with her one day. I think we’d do really well together.”
