Well, earlier it was reported that Aditya Roy Kapur opted out of Mohit Suri’s Do Villain for Ahmed Khan’s actioner titled Om, now the latest reports suggest that Dil Bechara actress Sanjana Sanghi has been taken on board as the lead actress in the film. Apparently, ARK has already started prepping for his role and will have a particular body prototype in the film.
As per the PinkVilla report, a source said, “Ahmed was scouting for a young Gen-Y actress who would not only look great opposite Adi but also be a fresh pairing on screen. Several names were discussed and approached. But, eventually, they have locked Dil Bechara heroine Sanjana Sanghi for the film. She plays Adi’s love interest but also has several action scenes in it. Om is being designed as an adrenaline pumping high octane action film, with the trademark Ahmed Khan stamp. Ahmed was mighty impressed with Adi’s performance in Malang and loved Sanjana’s nuanced role in the Mukesh Chhabra directorial. When they sat for the narration, Ahmed felt Sanjana suits the role to the T. She has already signed on the dotted line.”
The source also revealed that Tara Sutaria and Disha Patani were also in the race for this film. “There were advanced talks with both of them, but they couldn’t do the film since they already have prior film commitments. Ahmed wants to wrap this film by early next year, whereas Tara has work on Villain 2 and Disha has to wrap up KTina, followed by Shahid Kapoor starrer Yoddha where she plays the female lead,” added the source.
Meanwhile, Aditya Roy Kapur will be next seen in Anurag Basu’s Ludo, which also features Abhishek Bachchan, Rajkummar Rao, Sanya Malhotra, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Pankaj Tripathi and others in key roles.
