MUMBAI: Rumour had it that R Balki has roped in actor Arjun Kapoor for his next directorial that was supposed to be a light-hearted love story. The lead actress was undecided though.
But seems like the search has ended, as according to a report published in Indian media, Kareena Kapoor has been chosen to play Arjun’s love interest in the movie.
“His love story is yet untitled but is set in North India and Balki will start shooting it in July this year for release in 2016,” adds the report.
This is indeed a good news for the Kapoor lad as he has always maintained that Kareena is the only celebrity crush he has ever had.
While Arjun was last seen in Amit Sharma’s ‘Tevar’ earlier this year, Kareena will next be seen in Kabir Khan’s ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ opposite Salman Khan. Balki last directed Amitabh Bachchan-starrer ‘Shamitabh’ that released in February this year.
