They were meant to team up for the screen adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s 2 States. We’re talking about producer Sajid Nadiadwala and director Vishal Bharadwaj. And the film was to star Shah Rukh Khan.
But SRK eventually opted out. And the project fell through.
Now, five years later, Nadiadwala and Bharadwaj are finally coming together for what sources say would be an “intense love story”
And Hrithik Roshan would be playing the male lead in this film…a first for both Nadiadwala and Bharadwaj, as neither has ever worked with the Roshan superstar.
The film is expected to go on the floors next year.
Says a well-informed source, “Sajid Nadiadwala has only one release in 2015. And that’s Kabir Khan’s Phantom. Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha is Nadiadwala’s next release. Then will follow Baaghi with Tiger Shroff and a new girl to be directed by Sabir Khan. Vishal Bhardwaj’s film with Hrithik Roshan will come after that.”
