Anushka Sharma to romance Arjun Kapoor in ‘Kaneda’

Anushka Sharma and Arjun Kapoor teamed up for a new project, titled, ‘Kaneda’. The film will be helmed by Navdeep Singh, the one who directed Anushka-starrer ‘NH 10’.

"Anushka will be part of 'Kaneda'. She will produce and act in the film. We are in talks with Arjun Kapoor," sources said.

The director has narrated the script to Arjun Kapoor but the actor is yet to give his nod. But it is strongly believed that Arjun will accept the script. The film's title ‘Kaneda’ sounds odd but it is learnt that it is inspired by often-heard Punjabi pronunciation of the country, Canada, according to the insiders.

"Don't know why people are referring to 'Kaneda' as a comedy. It is a drama and it is not as intense as 'NH 10' was. We can't talk much about the film," sources added.

‘Kaneda’ will be Anushka's third production after ‘NH 10’ and ‘Phillauri’.

The 28-year-old actress just warped her second production ‘Phillauri’, which stars Diljit Dosanjh and ‘Life of Pi’ actor Suraj Sharma.

Currently, the ‘Gunday’ actor is working on two films, ‘Half Girlfriend’ with Shraddha Kapoor and ‘Mubarakan’ co-featuring his actor uncle Anil Kapoor.
