Katrina Kaif and Fawad Khan are all set to team up for Karan Johar and Fox Star Studio’s next production. It marks the directorial debut of writer-lyricist Aditya Dhar. According to a source close to the development, it’s a love story set in North India and unfolds against the backdrop of a big fat Punjabi wedding.
The source says, “The shoot is expected to kick off in Delhi sometime in November. Fawad is set to welcome his second child in October in Pakistan and will be by wife Sadaf’s side till the baby is born. The film will roll once he’s back in India and ready to resume shoot.”
The story revolves around Fawad and Katrina’s quirky, onscreen Punjabi families and will be a celebration of North Indian culture and revelry. The source adds, “Once done with the Delhi schedule, the team will move abroad. The locations are yet to be finalised and will be decided once Karan Johar returns from the US where he is currently on a concert tour.”
Aditya however did not deny the news, but refused to divulge any details saying he is not authorised to comment on the project yet. Composer Amaal Malik who has been part of Dharma’s recent projects is reportedly on board too but he too remained unavailable for comment. The film is expected to wrap up by January and the team is looking at a 2017 release. Fawad will next be seen in Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
