After the phenomenal success of the Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer, Dream Girl, director Raaj Shaandaliyaa is back with yet another light-hearted comedy and producer Ekta Kapoor is showing keen interest in Raaj’s stories. After approving one of his scripts, Ekta confirmed that Disha Patani is finalised for her next film. She will be in the lead role in the untitled movie.

For those unaware, Ekta has been waiting to work with Disha since a really long time and she couldn’t have thought of a better story than this to mark their collaboration.

On Wednesday, film critic and trade analyst, Taran Adarsh took to his official Twitter handle to share the official announcement. He wrote, “IT’S OFFICIAL… Disha Patani to head the cast of producer Ekta Kapoor’s next film [not titled yet]… Disha will be enacting a small-town #Punjabi girl in the film… Directed by Ashima Chibber… The content-driven film is written by Raaj Shaandilyaa, who directed #DreamGirl (sic).”

Disha will be seen portraying the role of a small-town Punjabi girl in the film.

Confirming Disha’s role in the film, Ekta too revealed, “Disha has a strong connect with the youth and I couldn’t think of anyone else who could portray the wild yet innocent, and crazy yet sensible character. To add to that, Disha’s oomph takes it notches higher,” Times Now reported.

Interestingly, this yet-to-be-titled comedy is only written by Raaj Shaandaliyaa, while Ashima Chibber will take the director’s seat. Meanwhile, Disha is currently gearing up for Malang, co-starring Aditya Roy Kapur, Anil Kapoor, Kunal Kemmu among others.
