Rajkummar Rao, who is all set for the release of his upcoming film ‘Stree’ co-starring Shraddha Kapoor in the lead role, has now confirmed his next project. The actor has teamed up with Kangana Ranaut for Anurag Basu’s ‘Imli’.

Rajkummar Rao, who was interacting with the media at the Lakme Fashion Week 2018 on Thursday in Mumbai, confirmed the news saying,”Yes I am doing a film with Anurag sir called ‘Imli’ which also stars Kangana.”

When asked Rajkummar about the reports which stated that Imtiaz Ali was going to cast him in his next venture instead of Shahid Kapoor, the actor clarified,“There is nothing as of now with Imtiaz sir but I would love to work with him for sure. I love working and being in front of the camera so, whenever I get a chance or whenever somebody offers me a good film I just do it.”

Coming to Anurag Basu’s ‘Imli’, the film marks the third collaboration of Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut after ‘Queen‘ and Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Mental Hai Kya’, which is set to release in February next year. Reportedly, ‘Imli’ is said to be a romantic film.

Anurag Basu and Kangana Ranaut have worked for projects like ‘Gangster’ in 2006, ‘Life in a Metro’ in 2007 and ‘Kites’ in 2010.
