The Delhi Belly actor will play a Punjabi munda in the film adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s bestseller
It has been a while since Sajid Nadiadwala acquired the adaptation rights of Chetan Bhagat’s novel 2 States. Initially Shahrukh Khan was supposed to play the leading man in the film that was to be directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. Speculations about the leading lady had just begun when we heard that the makers have decided to shelve the project as it wasn’t going anywhere.
The latest we heard about 2 States is that it has been revived and Imran Khan will be playing the leading man, a Punjabi munda in the film. Imran has come on board because his last outing at the BO Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu was a hit and he can now supposedly carry a solo-hero film on his shoulders. Wethinks the success of EMAET had more to do with Kareena Kapoor’s charm, but the dishy dude also did his bit! Anyway, now that the film has been revived, we wonder who might bag the role of Imran’s leading lady.
The Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na boy has come a long way and seems to have found a firm foothold in Bollywood. He will be seen in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola and Milan Luthria’s sequel to Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai. Will he present tough competition for Ranbir Kapoor at the awards ceremonies next year?
