We all know that Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut rocked together in Vikas Bahl’s comedy-drama, Queen.
Though, Kangana had dumped her fiancé Rajkummar in the film and had gone on her honeymoon alone. Now interestingly, the long-lost reel life lovebirds have decided to patch up and reunite for another film.
The Queen duo will be seen together in Shailesh R Singh and Ekta Kapoor’s next psychological thriller. The film is yet to be titled and it will be directed by veteran Tollywood filmmaker K Raghavendra Rao’s son Prakash Kovelamudi. This film will mark his Bollywood debut.
A source close to the development informed Mumbai Mirror, “It’s a fast-paced thriller revolving around the two protagonists. Set in London and Mumbai, it is expected to roll in March. Raj recently heard the script and immediately came on board. Both Kangana and he are looking forward to working with each other once again.”
The source further added, “The film has been written by Prakash’s wife, writer Kanika Dhillon who has earlier written the screenplay and dialogue for the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Ra.One, Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath and her husband’s Anushka Shetty-starrer Tamil-Telugu bilingual, Size Zero.”
Rajkummar Rao will start shooting for the film after wrapping up Shelly Dhar’s Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga which also stars Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor and Juhi Chawla. He is also shooting for Amar Kaushik’s horror comedy, Stree which also stars Shraddha Kapoor.
Kangana Ranaut is also busy shooting for her film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi in Jodhpur.
