After Disha Patani wrapped up Malang alongside Aditya Roy Kapoor, the actor was roped in to work in an Ekta Kapoor production.

The movie will present Disha as a small town Punjabi girl, a significant deviation from all the characters she has played to date.

Disha is excited to be playing the lead in the movie and she is looking forward to her collaboration with producer Ekta Kapoor.


To ace the role of a Punjabi girl, Disha Patani has already started preparation.

The Bharat actor has started investing hours every day in learning Punjabi in order to perfect her dialect.

Sharing some details about the film, Disha said, “This film is a crackling comedy and I am excited. I will be essaying the role of a small-town Punjabi girl. I am super enthusiastic to begin my preparations and learn the language. To bring about the beauty and authenticity of my character, I need to make sure that I can bring out the Punjabi in me, not only through my appearance and gestures but also through my dialect.”

“It is a super interesting character and a comical, quirky story. I am hoping that I’ll be able to do full justice to it. Being my first collaboration with Ekta ma’am, this project is all the more special to me and I am looking forward to the shoot,” she added.

On the other hand, there have been speculations that Disha will reunite with Salman Khan for his next film with Prabhu Deva titled Radhe: India’s Most Wanted Cop. In a Pinkvilla report, Anushka Sharma was also in consideration to play the female lead, but makers may have zeroed in on Disha. The final confirmation and announcement is awaited by Disha’s fans.
