The film Raabta might not have worked its magic at the box-office, but according to a leading tabloid, it has been reported that Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon have been roped in for the Hindi remake of Dirty Dancing (1987) which starred Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey in lead roles.

A source revealed to the tabloid:

“The script is currently being reworked to suit Bollywood audiences. The premise of how a girl develops a crush on her father’s resort dance instructor will remain the same. Considering Sushant and Kriti are skilled dancers, they are currently the top contenders for the lead roles.”

Initially, there were speculations that Baaghi 2 jodi Tiger Shroff and Disha Parani were roped in for this remake, however, both actors apparently opted out of the adaptation due to their tight schedules.

While Disha is immersed in prep work for Sanghamitra, Tiger has started shooting for Punit Malhotra’s Student of the Year 2 which also stars Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria. He also has YRF’s film with Hrithik Roshan and the Rambo remake.

Meanwhile, Sushant recently wrapped shooting for Abhishek Chaubey’s Son Chiriya while Kriti is busy with the shoot of Arjun Patiala opposite Diljit Dosanjh.

Sounds promising, right?!
