Diljit & Kiara join Akki and Bebo for KJo's next

19th July 2018

It is Karan Johar's yet to be titled Bollywood venture film featuring Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead roles and reports suggest that Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani are the brand new addition to the film's cast.

This is a romantic comedy set to be helmed by debutant director Raj Mehta and revolves around the story of two couples and their lives post marriage. Moreover, the makers were on the hunt for two young actors to play the other couple in this film and here the search sums up with Diljit and Kiara as the other lead.

Diljit would add a flavour of humour to the film's narrative and having Kiara along would be a cherry on the cake for sure. The actress was last seen in Netflix original 'Lust stories'

Confirming the news, a source close to the makers said, "Kiara has now become a favourite with KJo's production house. After Lust Stories, a segment of which was helmed by Karan, and Kalank, this will be her third collaboration with the filmmaker. As for Diljit, the character is of Haryanvi descent, so he suits the role."

The source further adds, "Diljit and Kiara are yet to sign on the dotted line. They have loved the story and have given a verbal nod to the project."

Diljit has previously shared screen space with Kareena in the 2016 film 'Udta Punjab'. The film is set to go on floors in November this year.
