Deepika Padukone, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday have been roped in as the leads in director Shakun Batra's next venure
Karan Johar announced Deepika Padukone’s new project with Shakun Batra - a relationship drama that also stars Sidhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday.
The yet-to-be-titled project will mark the next step in Batra's collaboration with producer-director Karan Johar after Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu (2012) and Kapoor & Sons (2016).
Described as a relationship drama, Shakun said the film will see its character finding themselves "stuck in a morally ambiguous zone".
"I have had a wonderful journey with Karan and his production house for almost a decade now, and I can't wait to get back into the director's chair for my next," the director said in a statement.
Karan and Shakun will produce the film alongside Apoorva Mehta.
"Shakun has directed one of the most acclaimed films of Dharma Productions Kapoor & Sons.
"With this movie, he also turns producer with us. His upcoming directorial is an intriguing relationship drama, which will release on Valentine's Day 2021. I am proud and excited about Shakun's vision as a versatile filmmaker," Karan said.
