Moving on from the debacle of his last directorial, Jab Harry Met Sejal, renowned filmmaker Imtiaz Ali is gearing up to commence work on his next film. Toplined by Shahid Kapoor, who starred in his previous hit Jab We Met, the film will have a strong female character, just like all Imtiaz Ali movies.
While Shahid is onboard from the very beginning, Ali has yet not announced the name of his female lead. The latest we hear that he has made his mind to introduce a new face to portray the female part in the movie.
A report, published in one of the premier trade magazines, says that after launching the likes of the likes of Ayesha Takia in Socha Na Tha, Giselli Monteiro in Love Aaj Kal and Nargis Fakhri in Rockstar, Ali is looking at casting a fresh face opposite Shahid Kapoor in his next film.
An official announcement is expected to be made soon.
