In 2019, Yami Gautam and Diljit Dosanjh were roped in together to do a movie, to be produced by Ramesh Taurani and directed by Aziz Mirza’s son, Haroon. But the box office collection of ‘Soorma’ put a break n film in question no more saw Dosanjh as part of the cast. While the industry buzz was that the fate of ‘Soorma’ at the box-office had made Taurani rethink, the actor had later during the promotions of ‘Good Newwz’ told this journalist that he had opted out of Haroon’s movie as he wasn’t too convinced about its story and had date issues as well. Haroon’s project was then put on the backburner. But as destiny would have it, Yami is now all set to romance Diljit in a new film.
Yami is yet to sign on the dotted line though, but the modalities are however being fast worked out. If all goes well then this film, which has brought Yami and Diljit together (again), will be directed by Shaad Ali, who had also called the shots for ‘Soorma’. Shaad has decided to shoot the Diljit starrer in Nainital from either the third or fourth week of October 2020.
The fact that Diljit plays the male lead was reported a few days ago. We bet Yami is amused by the quirk of fate. This venture by Shaad is going to be a quirky romcom. Yami Gautam and Shaad remained unavailable for comment.
