The latest big news from Dharma Productions is that Rishi Kapoor will play the part of a sardaar in the new movie featuring Hrithik Roshan. It was earlier reported that the film will feature Hrithik in a double role, one of which would be of a Sikh character. The comedy-drama is slated to be directed by Agneepath filmmaker Karan Malhotra.
Rishi last played a memorable character in Kapoor & Sons, which was also produced by Karan Johar. Rishi Kapoor has also played a sardaar before in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal.
Big news around this project is that it has been pushed into a rewrite, thanks to its similar character setups as Anees Bazmee’s Mubarakan, which has Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor playing sardaar characters as well. So much so, Arjun much like Hrithik, has a double role too. While Karan Malhotra has been asked to rework the script, there’s conjecture over Hrithik Roshan staying on with the film. It was also previously reported that, Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara would make her debut with this movie, but she’s apparently opted out.
