Vaani Kapoor has won the race and beaten some of her contemporaries to clinch the lead role opposite Ayushmann Khurrana in Abhishek Kapoor‘s next. The film which was announced last week has Ayushmann playing a cross-sectional athlete. A source has told ETimes, “The film’s team had a few other names in mind as well, but Abhishek firmly believed that Vaani would suit the role the best. The modalities are fast being worked out.”

Clearly, Vaani’s career is looking up now, especially considering the fact that she did only 2 films until last year after her debut in ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’ in 2013, one of them being a Tamil one and the other ‘Befikre’. The Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff superhit ‘War’ which released in October 2019, directed by Siddharth Anand, has certainly made the difference.

Soon, Vaani will leave for London to join Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta and Huma Qureshi for the shoot of ‘Bellbottom’, a film produced by Vashu Bhagnani. This morning, Team Bell Bottom took off for the same in a private aircraft minus Vaani, taking all the precautions against COVID-19. Vaani will also be seen in Sanjay Dutt and Ranbir Kapoor starrer film.

Ayushmann is pretty kicked about this Gattu film. Not too long ago, the Bala star had spoken about it and said, “I’m supremely excited about the physical transformation that I will have to undergo. It (Gattu’s film) will present me in an all-new avatar. I have never looked like this on-screen. The process is going to be intense and excruciating for me but I feel all the pain will be worth it.”

This Ayushmann-Vaani film is expected to go on floors by October 2020 and hit theatres in August 2021.
