Filmmaker Karan Johar has said that he is going to announce another film with actress Sonakshi Sinha within the next two weeks. Their last collaboration was mystery thriller film Ittefaq which was directed by Abhay Chopra. The ‘Noor’ actress received critical acclaim and a thumbs up from audience for her performance in the movie.
"I am very happy that I worked with Sonakshi and it wasn't any kind of 'Ittefaq' (coincidence) and that film did well that also wasn't and 'Ittefaq'. So now, we are doing another film together and the name and details about the film will be announced within two weeks," Karan Johar said in a statement.
The filmmaker spoke to the media on the occasion of the Filmfare Glamour and Style Awards 2017. Sonakshi Sinha attended the event along with Rekha, Sridevi, Hrithik Roshan, Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Daisy Shah and Jacqueline Fernandez.
However, if media speculations are to be believed, Karan probably wants to rope in the actress for his ambitious and much-anticipated project 'Shiddat'. This film is supposed to witness not one or two but six big stars together. Along with Sonakshi, the film is reported to star Sridevi, Sanjay Dutt, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur. The cast and official name of the movie are yet to be announced. The film is going to be directed by Abhishek Verman of ‘2 States’ fame.
Meanwhile, Sonakshi currently has some interesting projects lined up. The actress will next be seen in 'Happy Bhag Jayegi Returns', a sequel to the 2016 hit and an untitled film which stars her opposite Diljit Dosanjh for the first time.
Meanwhile, Karan is also producing Ayan Mukherji's Brahmastra, which will be a trilogy.
"Brahmastra is in prep mode. Ranbir (Kapoor), Alia (Bhatt) and Mr (Amitabh) Bachchan are working in the film. The films' shoot will begin in February or March next year. Hopefully, it will release next year as well. And hopefully, after every two years, we will come up with a new part of Brahmastra," he said.We’ll keep our fingers crossed and wait for the official announcement by the makers.
