Actor Sidharth Malhotra is teaming up with Meghna Gulzar for a film, set against the backdrop of a horrifying true story. According to the reports, the duo has been in talks for the project for quite some time and has found a subject that will surely give the audience a run for their money.
A source told Pinkvilla, “Sid and Meghna Gulzar have been discussing a probable collaboration for a while now and they have finally zeroed in on a subject whose narrative will take the nation by shock. It’s set against the backdrop of a horrifying true story and the idea is to portray it with utmost sensitivity for the big screen. The film will go on floors by Mid-2024”.
“Meghna had done all her research on this subject through the last few years and got the source material in place for the subject. She was deeply moved by all that happened and Sid resonated with her emotions on reading the script. Both stakeholders are looking forward to teaming up on this special project,” the source added.
The film will be produced by Junglee Pictures, who have previously worked with Meghna on Talwar and Raazi.
On the work front, Malhotra is gearing up for the release of his spy drama ‘Indian Police Force‘. Directed by Rohit Shetty, the series also features Vivek Oberoi and Shilpa Shetty.
