Katrina Kaif to romance Sidharth Malhotra in a love story

Only three films old and the handsome guy Sidharth Malhotra got the golden chance to romance the beautiful diva Katrina Kaif in his next project. The untitled film marks the directional debut of Farhan Akhtar's assistant Nitya Mehra. For quite sometime, the project was in talk and finally it got the green signal from the casts.

The unusual love-story is a joint collaboration of Dharma Productions, Junglee Pictures and Excel Entertainment. Nitya Mehra, who assisted Farhan Akhtar in 'Lakshya' and 'Don' will take charge of the project.

"We've cast Katrina and Sidharth in Nitya Mehra's film. Both the actors have very unusual roles in the film. It's important to try out new pairs and permutations, as these work to make audiences curious about a film," Farhan Akhtar informed.

At first, Nitya was keen to rope in Hrithik Roshan or Aamir Khan as the male lead but since both the actors are already committed, she zeroed upon Sidharth Malhotra. The fresh pair will definitely attract the audience.

Meanwhile, Nitya got married and as she got busy with her wedding preparations, the project pushed far behind. Now married Nitya got back to work with new zeal and she is getting everything ready. The film will roll once Katrina wraps up with ‘Jagga Jasoos’ opposite Ranbir Kapoor and ‘Fitoor’ alongside Aditya Roy Kapoor.  Sidharth too is busy preparing for preparation for Karan Johar's ‘Brothers’ starring Akshay Kumar and Jacqueline Fernandez.

When Nitya read out the scripts to both Sidharth and Katrina, they loved it and gave go ahead signal.
