Karan Johar’s next, a joint production by Dharma Productions and Anurag Kashyap’s Phantom Films, has been making headlines lately. The film is reported to include actors Siddharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra in the lead. While Parineeti has starred in a couple of films before, Siddharth has made his debut recently in Karan Johar’s fifth directorial venture, Student of the Year.
Karan Johar tweeted to confirm the film’s name and its fresh star-cast. The Dharma Productions chief tweeted the following, “The title of the Dharma-Phantom film with @S1dharthM and @ParineetiChopra is Hasee toh Phasee!!!….#haseetohphasee (sic).” The film is to be directed by Vinil Mathew who has previously directed ad films for a coffee brand that starred Deepika Padukone and Karan Johar. “The film is a quintessential love story that will feature a young cast. We will announce the names in a few days,” said Karan, adding, “The way he (Vinil Mathew) handles relationships in his ads is something you can’t ignore. And that is what he is doing in our film too.”
That apart, Karan Johar has also made known his thoughts on Anurag Kashyap and his production house, Phantom Films. “I have a lot of admiration for the production house since it has directors like Vikas Bahl, Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag at the helm. I have had such exciting meetings with them, with all the directors discussing storylines, titles and other details of Vinil’s film,” stated Karan.
There has been no news about the release date of this upcoming film. Neither the actors nor the director have divulged much either.
