Arjun Kapoor and Rakul Preet Singh are two promising actors from the young generation. It would be interesting to see them together on the big screen and that is going to happen soon as they are starring in a cross border family drama.
The yet-to-be-titled film will be Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani, Nikkhil Advani and John Abraham. Bhushan Kumar, Nikkhil Advani and John Abraham have previously collaborated for Batla House, Satyameva Jayate, and its already announced sequel which goes on the floors in February.

The film in question will be helmed by debutant Kaashvi Nair, the daughter of filmmaker K Shashilal Nair who has directed films such as One 2 Ka 4, Kroadh.
Although it’s her first feature directorial, Kaashvi’s association with Nikkhil’s Emmay Entertainment is nearly a decade old. At the same time, Nikkhil’s friendship with Arjun Kapoor dates back to the Kal Ho Naa Ho days where the actor worked as an assistant director. Kaashvie and her team have completed the recee and the film is in the final stages of prep.
“It is a coming-of-age, cross-border love story, beautifully written by Anuja Chauhan, Amitosh Nagpal and Kaashvie. It will be shot extensively in Punjab and Los Angeles and will feature Arjun and Rakul in never-seen-before avatars. We will be locking the title and the release date soon,” informs Nikkhil, who is gearing up for the release of his next production, the Milap Zaveri directed Marjaavaan, which also features Rakul, alongside Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria.
Bhushan adds that the film is scheduled to go on the floors this month. “It sums up our everyday experiences and relationships with our families. The audiences will definitely enjoy it,” the filmmaker promises.
Arjun informs that when the debutante filmmaker and the writers gave him a narration, he knew instantly that it was a special script. “I have grown up in a joint family so I understood that it’s the biggest pillar of love, strength and support. That’s the essence of our film, which has its heart in the right place. I’m having a blast even during the prep,” the 34-year-old actor asserts, adding that he is excited to be working with Rakul for the first time after collaborating with her during workshops. “She is a beautiful, instinctive and generous co-star,” he signs off.
