‘Bigg Boss 9’ runner up Rishabh Sinha to star in ‘Ishq Vs Luv’

‘Bigg Boss 9’ runner up Rishabh Sinha is all set to make his Bollywood debut as a lead actor with upcoming film ‘Ishq Vs Luv’. The 28-year-old will be seen romancing Afroz Khan, Miss Asia International-India, 2013.

‘Ishq Vs Luv’ is a romantic comedy directed by Rohit Raj and produced by Arsalaan Khan. The film completed its first schedule in Mumbai and the remaining scenes will be shot in other locales across the country. The movie revolves around a couple who is unaware of their feelings for each other.

An excited Rishabh confirmed the news to BollywoodLife and said, "Yes, I am doing this film. I know Afroz and the makers since quite some time. We are good friends and everything is going smoothly." 

However, this is not Rishabh’s first Bollywood movie. He was previously seen in a negative role in Subhash Ghai’s 2014 film ‘Kaanchi: The Unbreakable’. He also starred in television series ‘Qubool Hai’ and MTV reality show ‘Splitsvilla’.

Rishabh became a household name after his successful stint in ‘Bigg Boss 9’. He won everyone's heart with his honesty, frankness and innocence. He entered the controversial reality show as a wild card contestant and went on to become the first runner up. Initially dismissed as a weak contestant, Rishabh emerged as one of the strongest contender of the title, by the time the show came to an end. However, Prince Narula eventually won the show.

Rishabh was also approached to play the role of the grown up king Ashoka in Colors’ show ‘Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat’, but apparently, things did not materialise.
