Is Sonam Kapoor to pair up with Farhan Akhtar? The latest grapevine is saying that stylish Sonam Kapoor might pair up with multi-talented Farhan Akhtar in Rhea Kapoor’s next production venture.
The film is adaptation of the author Anuja Chuhan’s book “Battle For Bittora”. Actually, model turn actor Fawad Khan was original choice for the movie, but due to some reason he couldn’t commit to the film.
Sources say, “Right after he was signed for the film, Fawad had expressed his concerns to the makers. He was apparently uncomfortable with a few intimate scenes in the script. Both parties tried working it out, but now Fawad has decided that he doesn’t want to be a part of the project”.
After few discussions, actor-director Farhan Akhtar roped to play the male lead in the movie opposite to female lead Sonam Kapoor, as the onscreen couple already worked in blockbuster periodic drama “Bhagh Milkha Bhagh”, so the team considered the 40-year-old multi-faced celebrity as the perfect choice for the upcoming movie.
According to a source of the leading Bollywood website, “Farhan and Sonam’s pairing was liked by people in the biopic of Milkha Singh. They arrived at a joint decision that Farhan would be ideal for the role. Rhea was very happy with the choice and currently they are finalizing the deal with him. Official announcements will soon be made”. So, the official confirmation is yet to announce, neither production team nor actors say anything about it till now. So, just wait and watch.
Still there is no information regarding, who will be “captain of the ship”, the director of the melodrama is yet to decide anyway.
Well, ‘Battle For Bittora’ is the story of two influential political families, fighting against each other for powers. It is the story of two childhood sweethearts and the legal heirs of the family; who were thrown into the battlefield where they pitted against each other to win the elections at all costs.
