Jennifer Winget to star in Zoya Akhtar’s next opposite Fawad Khan?


Television actress Jennifer Winget is reportedly all set make her Bollywood debut. Buzz is that the beautiful actress will be seen opposite Pakistani hunk Fawad Khan in Zoya Akhtar’s upcoming flick. Jennifer was in news recently for her divorce with Karan Singh Grover who went on to marry Bipasha Basu.

The ‘Dill Mill Gayye’ actress has posted a beautiful photograph of hers on her Instagram page. But more than the black and white picture, it was the cryptic caption that caught attention. “#rumourhasit... haven't you heard? and whaddyaknow, maybe it's 'bout time! Now wont that be #adreamcometrue,” the caption read.  

At the just-concluded International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards, Zoya had confirmed that her next film based on street rappers of Mumbai, will go on floors next year. The ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ maker is currently working on the script with Reema Kagti.

Reports stated that Ranveer Singh has been roped in for the film. The ‘Bajirao Mastani’ actor had expressed his desire to work with the ‘Khubsoorat’ actor and Zoya is considering to cast Fawad in the film.

Now, recent reports suggest that the makers are considering Jennifer to cast opposite Fawad in the film and her manager is in talks with production house Excel Entertainment for the project. However, she hasn’t auditioned for the said role yet.

Jennifer had previously starred in Kunal Kohli’s ‘Phir Se’, but a report in Bollywood Life mentioned that the movie couldn’t release due to post production woes and legal issues.

Meanwhile, Jennifer will be seen in upcoming TV series ‘Behadd’ opposite ‘Bigg Boss 7’ contestant Kushal Tandon.
