Rajkummar Rao to star opposite Kangana Ranaut in ‘Imli’?

Power-house actor Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut‘s association goes back to the year 2014. The two equally talented actors had shared screen space in ‘Queen’, which was a box office hit. And now after the successful venture, the two agreed to come on board for Ekta Kapoor’ Mental Hai Kya’, the shoot of which is still going.

And now, if reports in Times Of India is to be believed then this dynamic duo is all set to pair up for the third time. Yes, you read it right! Director Anurag Basu has roped in Rao to play the male lead opposite Kangana in his film titled, ‘Imli’. While this movie will be Kangana’s third venture with Basu, Rajkummar will work under the guidance of Anurag for the first time.

A source close to TOI said, “Rajkummar has been signed for the film opposite Kangana. This is his first film with Basu. He is very excited to work with him, as it was always his dream to be a part of an Anurag Basu movie. Raj also happens to be a fan of love stories, so that makes this all the more special.”

Well, if this is true then ‘Imli’ will be worth watching as it has three multi-talented people working on it. Rajkummar Rao has carved a space for himself in the industry with his classics like the recent one ‘Newton’, while Kangana Ranaut too has made a mark in B-town. And obviously, we cannot judge Anurag Basu’s skills as the man has given us a classic piece like ‘Barfi’, which was even nominated for Oscars.

What do you think about this trio? Will they turn out to be a terrific trio? Do pour in your thoughts.
