September 19 : Aditya Roy Kapur, who was recently seen in Sadak 2, has bagged a new film. The actor has been roped in by Zee Studios for a big-scale action movie. The Malang actor had walked out of Mohit Suri's Ek Villain 2 after he found out that his co-star John Abraham had a meatier role.
The new film will be tentatively titled Om, and will mark the directorial debut of action director Tinu Verma's son Kapil, and bankrolled by Ahmed Khan. Aditya has landed the titular role in the action thriller, which will see Tara Sutaria opposite him. While Tara has liked the story, she is yet to sign on the dotted line, it is reported.
Before the film goes on the floor later this year, Aditya has to reportedly work on his physicality as it will be a hardcore action film. While the makers are in the process of finalising the primary cast for the film, an official announcement will be made soon. The film will be shot in India as well as in international locations, and the makers have started short-listing the international locations, it is reported.
If reports are to be believed, Aditya is unhappy with the Bhatts as he felt that he was sidelined from Sadak 2, featuring him along with Sanjay Dutt, Pooja Bhatt and Alia Bhatt. He was not happy with the final outcome of his role in the film.
The actor is currently awaiting the release of his film Ludo, to be streamed on Netflix soon.
