A lot of speculations have been doing the rounds about '2 States' director Abhishek Varman's next which is touted to be a period-drama set in the Partition era. The film has already been in the works for two years now.
As per a leading daily, the film's producer Karan Johar wasn't happy with the script so Abhishek has been working on a fresh draft for the two-hero project. And while several names have been doing the rounds, for the story of two brothers, rumours suggest that Varun Dhawan and Arjun Kapoor might make it to the final cast.
The daily further added that while Abhishek, when contacted, chose to not comment, a source close to the production said, "He is fine-tuning the script at the moment and will be presenting the final draft to Karan in a week's time. Casting is underway. Contrary to rumours, the film is not on the backburner now. Karan didn't want to go ahead without the perfect script but things seem to be working out now. The film is expected to go on the floors in the coming months."
We hear that the film, initially titled Kalank, has been rechristened Shiddat.
Meanwhile, Arjun Kapoor and Varun Dhawan recently walked the ramp for their designer-friend Kunal Rawal at the Lakme Fashion Week 2017 and since then, everyone is eagerly waiting to see them in a film together. Will Shiddat make it happen? Do let us know your thoughts.
