Yesterday, the reports of Shahid Kapoor signing Shashank Khaitan’s Yoddha cheered all his fans. While the action-entertainer will be bankrolled by Karan Johar under his banner Dharma Productions, the latest report suggest that the Kabir Singh will romance the gorgeous actress Disha Patani. According to PinkVilla, a source said, “Disha Patani has been signed on for Shashank’s next. It’s titled Yoddha and will have Disha and Shahid romance each other on screen for the first time. In fact, the film is a big actioner being mounted on a lavish scale. Along with Shahid, Disha too will have an action packed role in the movie, details of which has been tightly kept under wraps for now. The team was scouting for an actress who’s great with stunts and action sequences and they locked Disha very recently. An official announcement will be made soon.”
Meanwhile, Shahid Kapoor will be next seen in the remake of Nani and Shraddha Srinath’s Telugu venture Jersey, which also features Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapur in key roles. The sports drama is directed by Gowtham Tinnanauri and produced by Allu Aravind, Aman Gill and Dil Raju.
On the other hand, Disha Patani will be next seen in Salman Khan starrer Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai. Talking about her role in the film, Disha Patani earlier told us, “It’s a commercial film. It’s an out-an-out Salman Khan film. We’re hoping that it turns out to be very entertaining for the audience. I don’t know whether I can say it’s a big role. Honestly, it’s not about how big or small the role is. It’s about if the role leaves an impact, if it means something. Like my role in Dhoni (The Untold Story) was quite small, but it left a major impact — that’s why I am where I am right now. So, I guess the length is not really important for me, but the part I’m playing. You’ll find out more about my part (in Radhe) once you see something. I’ll be able to speak about it more then, but I don’t really choose such things, I don’t really see all these things. If I like a role, I do it.” Radhe also stars Randeep Hooda and Gautam Gulati in key roles.
