It was recently reported that producer Karan Johar has signed Shahid Kapoor for an action thriller. In the tentatively titled, Yoddha comes another development. With director Shashank Khaitan keen to work on his next it is learnt that the filmmaker has approached Disha Patani to play Shahid’s love interest in the film. According to a report by MidDay, a source revealed that Shashank sat down for narration with the actress.

The publication quoted a source as saying—

Though the film is an actioner centred on the protagonist, the female lead has an interesting arc and is crucial to the narrative. Shashank, who is giving finishing touches to the script, recently sat down for a narration with Disha. The actor has expressed her interest in coming on board, but has yet to sign on the dotted line.

If Disha Patani comes on board, this will mark her first collaboration with Shahid and producer Karan Johar. The film is likely to go on floors by early 2021. The report also suggested that an official announcement will be made soon by the makers of the film.

On the professional front, Disha Patani will be next seen in Salman Khan‘s Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai. While Shahid Kapoor will be next seen in sports-drama, Jersey.
