August 07 : Vaani Kapoor, who will soon leave for UK to shoot for her upcoming film Bell Bottom, has reportedly bagged Abhishek Kapoor’s next opposite Ayushmann Khurrana.
The film, which was announced last week, will see Ayushmann as a cross-sectional athlete. In a recent interview Abhishek said that Ayushmann will have to undergo a physical transformation for this role. While it is a challenge, Ayushmann has accepted it. The romantic flick, which is currently untitled, is likely to start shoot this October.
Confirming the same, Vaani said to a portal how excited she was for this heartrending film. “I have always wanted to work with Abhishek Kapoor, being so inspired by his films,” she said to the portal in a statement. Abhishek Kapoor also told the portal that he was impressed by Vaani’s performance in Befikre. “I am looking forward to having her and Ayushmann on set. I believe the combination will be electrifying,” he told the portal.
Vaani will soon jet off to London to join Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta and Huma Qureshi for the shoot of Bell Bottom. The rest of the Bell Bottom team left for London this morning.
While Vaani was last seen in Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer War in 2019, Ayushmann was last in Gulabo Sitabo with Amitabh Bachchan.
