Arjun Kapoor to share screen space with Akshay Kumar in Gutka

Apparently, the Ishaqzaade star has signed the dotted line for Khiladi Kumar’s next film

A little birdie tells us that Arjun Kapoor has signed his second film with Dharma Productions, titled Gutka. In Gutka, Arjun will play the second lead with Akshay Kumar. Serial-kisser Emraan Hashmi was strongly considered for the role but Arjun ousted him! Gutka will be directed by Puneet Malhotra and it’s a joint venture between Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Akshay’s Hari Om Entertainment.

Arjun Kapoor is already working with Dharma Productions for his film, 2 States, which is slated to release in 2014. The Kapoor lad is not only kicked about sharing screen space with the Khiladi but his happiness has no bounds as he is the only actor who has bagged two back-to-back movies with Karan Johar’s production house. Lucky boy! We hope the two AKs stimulate us with Gutka.
