It’s confirmed! Hrithik signs Kabir Khan’s next, to begin shooting after the release of Salman’s Tubelight. The actor has finally given a nod to his next film after Kaabil – a Kabir Khan venture. Although an official confirmation on the same is yet to be made but we hear this untitled film is in collaboration with Sajid Nadiadwala and is going to be way high on romance-action and drama- the genre that Kabir is known for. Now it’s left to see who will be cast opposite Hrithik in this film. In fact, this news also makes it clear that Hrithik has not taken up Karan Malhotra’s next opposite Sara Ali Khan, unlike speculations. This is the film Kabir will take up post-Salman Khan-starred Tubelight. “It will be a high-octane action-romance-drama and could well be one of the most expensive films made in Bollywood so far. Much of the film will be shot overseas and will be bigger in scale and vision than Kabir’s other films. The film rolls this September, but the leading lady is yet to be finalized. Incidentally, Sajid signed Hrithik for one of his productions seven years ago, helmed by Imtiaz Ali. “That film, however, never got made. However, Hrithik has said yes to the new project and loves its script and scale,” adds our source. Currently busy in post-production of Tubelight (out on Eid this year), Kabir is already prepping for pre-production of the Hrithik film. “Kabir and Hrithik have been in touch over the last couple of months and both are excited to be working together for the first time. Once he completes Kabir’s film, Hrithik will be ready to shoot for his father Rakesh Roshan’s film Krrish 4”.
