A few weeks ago, Aamir Khan walked out of Excel Entertainment’s time-travel drama, as the actor and the studio were not on the same page as far as the remuneration and commercial clauses were concerned.
The latest we hear is Hrithik Roshan has stepped into Aamir’s role and if all goes as planned, he will be paired opposite Deepika Padukone. This will also be Deepika’s dream come true as the actress has expressed her desire a couple of times to work with the Greek God.
A source close to the production revealed, “The film is a sci-fi drama with a time-travel spin. It has a romantic angle which spans across timelines. When the script went to Hrithik, he was impressed and promptly agreed to come on board.”
Meanwhile, Deepika will begin her work on this project post Karan Johar’s Shuddhi in 2015.
The film will be directed by Nitya Mehra, a newbie who has served as an assistant director on films like Life of Pi, The Reluctant Fundamentalist and Don.
This will be Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone first film together.
