"Sidharth and Ekta have met a couple of times to discuss the movie, which is still in the scripting stage. But the idea has been bounced to Sidharth and he has liked it," said an unverified source, according to a DNA report.

Malhotra had previously hinted at the movie in another interview with DNA. “I am in talks for a romantic film. It’s again the quintessential Hindi romance that I haven’t done for a while. Nothing has been locked yet. Once it is done, I will talk about it. But I have liked it for now," said Malhotra.

Malhotra is currently awaiting the release of Aiyaary which will hit theater screens on 16 February. The film is directed by Neeraj Pandey and stars Manoj Bajpayee, Rakul Preet Singh and Pooja Chopra alongside Malhotra.

Malhotra will also be seen in the upcoming Captain Vikram Batra's (Kargil martyr) biopic.

Kapoor on the other hand is on board as the producer for two upcoming films — an Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari directorial and Mohit Suri's sequel to the Sidharth Malhotra-Shraddha Kapoor starrer Ek Villain.
