Hrithik Roshan to romance Yami Gautam in ‘Kaabil'

According to the latest grapevine, Yami Gautam has been signed opposite Hrithik Roshan for Rakesh Roshan’s forthcoming project, ‘Kaabli’.

Rakesh Roshan, who is producing this Sanjay Gupta-directed love-revenge drama, says, "Yami is a fine actress and makes a fresh pairing with Hrithik. She suits the role to the T and we are glad to have her on board." The filmmaker goes on to add, "After a long time, I have heard a novel story with all the commercial ingredients, so I'm very excited about it."

Hrithik, who is currently on s crutches recovering from a leg injury, will soon start shooting for Ashutosh Gowariker’s ‘Mohenjo Daro' while Yami Gautam is looking forward to her next release 'Sanam Re' starring Pulkit Samrat.

A lot of other names like Parineeti Chopra, Shraddha Kapoor were being considered for the role but finally Yami has been sealed.

A source adds, “It’s a big solo-heroine project for Yami, who has done films with Ajay Devgn and Varun Dhawan, where she had to share joint credit with another actress. There were speculations that actresses like Parineeti Chopra and Kareena Kapoor had been approached for the role in Kaabil, which director Sanjay Gupta later denied. It’s a big feather in Yami’s hat to be part of this project. Everyone from Gupta to Hrithik and his father Rakesh felt that Yami suited the role the best.”

The intense love story-cum-thriller will go on floor soon. The first schedule will start in Hyderabad.

Hrithik and Yami will definitely make an interesting and fresh pair.
