And that is none other than Kanika Dhillon, who has written films like Manmarziyaan (2018), Kedarnath (2018), Judgmental Hai Kya (2019) and Netflix’s Guilty (2020). Initially in her career, Kanika Dhillon has worked with Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment for some time as she was an assistant director of King Khan’s 2007 blockbuster Om Shanti Om. Kanika Dhillonwrote the screenplay of Ra.One (2011) and also the additional screenplay of Always Kabhi Kabhi (2011). So after almost 9 years, this upcoming project will mark the reunion of Kanika and Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment.
According to Bollywood Hungama, a source close to the project says, “Kanika Dhillon has come on-board and she along with Rajkumar Hirani and Abhijat Joshi are busy scripting the film. Kanika is mainly scripting while Rajkumar and Abhijat are helping her with inputs. They are hoping to finish in a month or two. The film was to go on floors in August but due to the lockdown, it seems that the shoot will be pushed ahead”.
On the film front, Shah Rukh Khan is going through a rough phase as his last outings like Imtiaz Ali’s Jab Harry Met Sejal and Anand L Rai’s Zero, failed badly at the box office.
On the other hand, Rajkumar Hirani’s last outing Sanju was one the biggest hits of 2018 as the Ranbir Kapoor starrer uncovered the closed chapters in Sanjay Dutt’s life.
