Choreographer Bosco Martis' directorial debut Circus has been the talk of the town for quite some time. It has now emerged that Sooraj Pancholi and Parineeti Chopra will be playing the lead roles in the film.
The film will also feature Suniel Shetty playing the role of Parineeti's father.
A source told Mumbai Mirror, "Scripting for Circus began a year ago. It portrays a strong father-daughter relationship spanning a decade and will have Suniel Shetty playing Pari's dad. A child artiste will be cast to play the younger Pari."
The buzz is that Shetty will be seen doing some gutsy stunts as a circus artist and Parineeti's role is that of a trapeze artist.
Admitting that direction had been on his mind for a while Bosco said, "There is nothing to say right now. We are still in the initial stages of production and casting. I have been in talks with the actors but Parineeti is yet to sign on the dotted line."
The musical drama will begin shooting in December.
