The filmmaker duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK is all set to release their next film A Gentleman, which stars Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez. But before the film hits the screen on 25th August, they have already started working on their next project. If reports are to be believed, their next venture is titled Farzi and they have already roped in the leggy lass Kriti Sanon to play the female lead. Initially, Shahid Kapoor’s name was doing the rounds as the male lead in the film, but latest reports suggest that Arjun Kapoor has come on board to star opposite Kriti in the movie.
A source revealed to a leading entertainment magazine, “The film was initially being planned with Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon. After Shahid walked out, Arjun was approached for the film, but the film was put on the backburner. The makers have decided to revive the script with a few changes to the plot."
Another source close to actor Arjun Kapoor reveals, "He has been offered the film, but he has not signed it yet. He has Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, which rolls now, and will shoot for Namastey Canada after that. So, he has to work out his dates first."
We are just waited to see if Arjun gives his nod to the project.
