Mumbai, April 23 -- If all goes well, actors Sidharth Malhotra and Anushka Sharma will soon be sharing screen space in an upcoming film.
The makers of this project - an Indian adaptation of the French film, Priceless (2006) - have apparently finalised their names for the lead roles. An industry insider reveals, "Filmmaker Karan Johar has joined hands with an international studio headed by Siddharth Roy Kapur for this large-scale project. He (Karan) has come on board as a co-producer."
The currently untitled movie will be directed by Tarun Mansukhani. Incidentally, a report had claimed that the makers were considering roping in Alia Bhatt for the role that Anushka has now been approached for.
"But they want to go ahead with Sidharth and Anushka now as they feel their pairing will give the film a fresh and young vibe. Although they both have agreed to do the film in principle, they are yet to sign any papers."
