A source close to the development reveals that Kabir’s film starring Kartik would cast him in a full-fledged action avatar.
“Kartik has so far not done an out-and-out actioner. Kabir and he have zeroed in on a terrific action-romance plot which is now in development,” says the source.
The buzz is, Katrina Kaif will play the lead opposite Kartik Aaryan in Kabir’s film.
“They are on the look-out for a co-star who has not shared screen space with Kartik. So the Kriti Sanons and Kiara Advanis are definitely out. Kabir is a very close friend of Katrina who needs a hit badly. Her attempts to play the hero with Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ishaan Khatter in Phone Bhoot fell flat. She needs to get back in the race, and has been sending feelers to her director-friends,” says a source.
