Ishaan Khatter to feature in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next movie?
After impressing the audience with his performances in Majid Majidi’s ‘Beyond The Clouds’ and Shashank Khaitan’s ‘Dhadak’ last year, Ishaan Khatter will reportedly feature in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next film. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother, Ishaan has been approached for an interesting role in Bhansali’s next project.
However, there has been no official announcement made from any side so far. A source told the Entertainment portal, “Sanjay sir was quite impressed with Ishaan in ‘Dhadak’. He has offered the role in his next to the young actor.”
As per the report, the film is in the initial phase and Khatter has not yet signed on the dotted line. The source said that the formalities are yet to be worked out. Notably, Khatter made his Bollywood debut in ‘Dhadak’ last year opposite Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s daughter, Janhvi Kapoor.
‘Dhadak’, is an official adaptation of Marathi blockbuster film ‘Sairat’ that released in 2016. ‘Dhadak’ received mixed reviews from the critics, however, the performance of both of its lead actors especially Ishaan’s was appreciated by one and all.
Interestingly, Bhansali has worked with Ishaan’s half-brother, Shahid Kapoor in his last directorial venture, ‘Padmaavat’ in which he played the role of Raja Rawal Ratan Singh. The movie also featured Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in the lead role.
We hope that this report turns out to be true because we are pretty sure that Ishaan and Bhansali can together create magic.
