Action hero Vidyut Jammwal and Shruti Haasan are all set to collaborate for Mahesh Manjrekar’s next. The director-actor, who is known for making critically acclaimed movies like Astitva and Vaastav will next direct a gritty family drama. The untitled project also has Naseeruddin Shah, Amol Palekar and Prateik Babbar in pivotal roles.
While Vidyut has signed on the dotted line, Shruti has just given the confirmation. The actress will be playing Vidyut’s love interest in the movie.
A source told DNA, ”Shruti was approached with the script some time ago. She had loved the basic concept of the film, which is about an NRI who comes back to his country and how things change for him. She had verbally given her nod to the project but hasn’t signed on the dotted line. She has finally locked her dates for the film now. Adding further, the source said, ”Shruti might not be doing a lot of action herself, but she’s the catalyst in the story. Her character is the reason behind the whole transformation in Vidyut’s character.”
This is not the first time, Shruti and Vidyut have been cast opposite each other. Earlier, they have worked together is yet-to-release Yaara. The movie is set to go on floors later this year.
Meanwhile, Shruti was last seen in Bollywood film Behen Hogi Teri and Vidyut appeared in Commando 2. Both the movies turned out to be box office turkeys.
