After making his way into people’s heart through his endearing character in the web series ‘Permanent Roommates’, actor Sumeet Vyas made everyone sit up and take notice of him in the recently released female buddy comedy ‘Veere Di Wedding’.

And now, if the recent reports are to be believed, the actor is all set to be seen opposite fiery actress Kangana Ranaut in filmmaker Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s next. A source close to the project told Mumbai Mirror, “Sumeet has had two meetings with the makers but is yet to sign on the dotted line. He is a Kangana fan, the two have appreciated each other’s work in the past. Sumeet is keen to come on board.” (Also Read: Jimmy Shergill is all set to reunite with Kangana Ranaut in ‘Mental Hai Kya’)

The film in question which will be helmed by ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ director, is reportedly a sports drama based on the annual national-level kabaddi championship. Kangana Ranaut will be seen playing a kabaddi player in it. The makers of the film are currently looking out for a coach who can train Kangana to get the nuances of a kabaddi player right.

Talking about the film, earlier a source close to the development was quoted saying in Mid-Day as, “Ashwiny is screening national-level kabaddi champions’ profiled to find the one who can handhold Kangana through the sport. While Kangana has already started practising yoga to be able to master holding breath- a pre-requisite of the game- the prep will see her learning different kinds of holds and kicks. Learning the crocodile hold and wrist catch will be crucial. She will also need to undergo a change in terms of her physique.”

Apparently, the film will take off in October this year as Kangana is currently busy shooting for the psychological thriller ‘Mental Hai Kya’ which also stars Rajkummar Rao in a pivotal role.

However, there are also some stories doing the round which state that Sumeet has not been approached for this film. How we wish to see these two power-house performers share screen space. But until an official announcement is made about this film, all we can do is wait and watch.
