They have starred together in a romantic-drama earlier, but Shraddha Kapoor says her forthcoming film Ok Jaanu with Aditya Roy Kapur will be in a different zone. The 27-year-old actress worked with Aditya in the 2013 blockbuster Aashiqui 2, which was a breakthrough film for the duo.
They will next be seen in Shaad Ali’s Ok Jaanu, which is a remake of Tamil film Ok Kanmani. “I am very excited for the film. This is the first time (after Aashiqui 2) that Aditya and I will be coming back together. Shaad will be directing, and I loved his Saathiya. I think it’ll be very interesting to be directed by him. It’ll be amazing,” said Shraddha.
The film, produced by Karan Johar, revolves around two young lovers and deals with issues like live-in relationships.
When asked if the magic of Aashiqui 2 will be repeated with their pairing, the ABCD 2 actress said, “I won’t be able to say that, but I hope people like us coming back together. We come back together in a very different zone this time, not in an intense love story.”
Shraddha, who had starred in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider, an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s tragedy Hamlet, will also be seen in the movie version of Chetan Bhagat’s book Half Girlfriend. The film to be directed by Mohit Suri, who earlier worked with Shraddha in Aashiqui 2, will see her romancing Arjun Kapoor for the first time.
The actress says she is yet to read the book, but is excited to begin shooting for the film. “I’ve not read the book yet, I’ve read a bit of it but I intend to read the entire book since it is an adaptation. It’s a third time that Mohit and I will be coming back together and I am very excited. I loved the script. It’s my first film with Arjun and I am extremely excited to working with him as well,” she said.
Meanwhile, Shraddha’s film Baaghi opposite Tiger Shroff is ready for release on April 29. The actress, who has often played the role of a sweet-bubbly girl, will be doing action for the first time in the movie. “It wasn’t a conscious decision to break out of a mould, but definitely to do something new and different. I had an opportunity with ABCD 2 to explore dance in that fashion and I got this opportunity to do action. It’s great. I feel these opportunities coming my way make me feel very grateful,” she said.
