There are speculations that Shraddha Kapoor would be paired with Farhan Akhtar in the film and that Mohit and his ‘Half Girlfriend’ star met to discuss the film. But Mohit has cleared all the rumours by saying, “Shraddha just came over for chai and to hang with my daughter Devee. She adores her. Everything about my relationship with Shraddha is not about movies and work. She is more like family. So as of now, we haven’t discussed any film.”
About the project, Mohit spoke earlier that the script is similar to the 1979 film, The Champ. He revealed, “The story is close to my own relationship with my father, except that the film has boxing as its backdrop. I was eight when my mother passed away, and my father raised me on his own. The story is about the struggle he faced as a single dad at 36.”
On being asked whether she might be the lead actress in his upcoming project, he said, “I love her, so I can’t be sure of that.” The project is generating interest because of the Shraddha and Farhan link-up that began on the sets of ‘Rock on 2’.
