Karan Johar has managed to pull off a casting coup of sorts by getting Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt on board for his next production, to be directed by Abhishek Varman. The movie has been in the news for quite sometime now.
Earlier, late actress Sridevi was a part of this movie which also stars Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead. The movie was reportedly called Shiddat but later, Karan Johar tweeted a clarification regarding the name of the movie and revealed that it is yet untitled.
However, with Sridevi’s sudden demise, the movie’s announcement was put on hold. Sridevi’s daughter Jahnavi Kapoor later on posted on Instagram that Madhuri Dixit has stepped into Sridevi’s shoes for the movie. While this was confirmed by KJo too, speculations regarding the leading man of the movie continued to make headlines.
But today we have learnt from a source that KJo and his team has managed to do the impossible. He has got both Madhuri and Sanjay together for the movie, that is slated to hit screens sometime in 2019 first half. Informs a source, “Yes Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt have agreed to work together for this film and it is indeed the best news in the longest. Ever since Madhuri came on board, everyone was wondering if she would be willing to work with Dutt, owing to their controversial past. But after much back and forth and some discussions, both the actors have given their nod.”
Adds another source, “Whatever happened between the two is past. They have moved on happily. Also, Madhuri has always believed that personal equations shouldn’t matter when it comes to professional work. It is a mature decision from both and they are both excited to work together almost after 25 years. The film rolls next month and they are aiming to release it in April 2019.” To get an official confirmation on the same, we have messaged Director Abhishek Varman and the official spokesperson of Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and are waiting for a revert.
