Karan Johar is all set to bring a romantic comedy as his next. The director-producer offered his project to Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt and they both have come on board to play the romantic couple. Both the actors earlier shared the screen space in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy and were loved by the audience. The shoot of this film was supposed to start from May this year but due to the pandemic, the plans have been pushed forward.
Now, a source informed Bollywood Hungama on how the makers locked the title of the film. The source said, “The makers were on the lookout for a quirky yet relatable title and that’s when they zeroed in on Prem Kahani. The film is essentially a love story of two completely opposite characters, and the audience will get a glimpse of vintage Karan Johar, whose films at one point, were just meant to spread happiness, and take the audience in a fairy tale world.”
The source reveals that the preparations for the film have already started. “The first step is to get the crew vaccinated, and this will be followed by getting on the sets to kick off the first schedule. It’s all work in progress with set designing and other aspects being looked after in isolation. The music settings have also begun, as being a romantic saga, there lies ample of scope for good music,” the source further revealed.
“Though a love story, this one is in a completely different space. While ADHM was intense, this one has ample comedy and fits in the definition of rom-coms that Bollywood, especially, the ones Dharma Productions is known for.”
Meanwhile, Ranveer Singh’s film 83 is in line to release as the makers are waiting for the cinema halls to reopen. Apart from this the actor also has Jayeshbhai Jordar and Cirkus in his kitty. He will also be seen in Sooryavanshi for a cameo. On the other hand, Alia Bhatt will be next seen in Brahmastra, RRR and Gangubai Kathiawadi.
