Recently on Yash Chopra’s 85th birth anniversary, Yash Raj Films announced an action thriller movie with Bollywood’s most sought-after dancers, Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff playing the lead. Directed by Sidharth Anand, this movie is being seen as one of the most exciting projects of 2019 considering the unimaginable casting coup.
The yet-untitled movie that is said to be an out-and-out action flick will have only one leading heroine. And for this, Vaani Kapoor who was last seen in YRF’s new-age love story ‘Befikre’ with Ranveer Singh, has been finalized. The actress has been paired opposite Hrithik who reportedly plays a mentor to Tiger until things go awry between the two and they turn against each other in this high-octane entertainer.
The director Sidharth Anand confirmed the news, saying: “While the film has two lead actors — Hrithik and Tiger, there is only one girl in the film, who is cast opposite the former. I was looking for young and fresh energy in the casting and I have found that in Vaani.”
“I have loved Vaani as an actor in both her films (Shuddh Desi Romance and Befikre) and after meeting her I was completely convinced that she is the best girl for my film,” Anand said to a leading daily.
The movie which is set to go on floors in April 2018 has been scheduled to release on 25th January 2019.
