A “scoop” in Pinkvilla this morning reported a re-collaboration between actor Vicky Kaushal and producer-director Karan Johar. This, according to the report was an impulsive arrangement facilitated by the cancellation of Kaushal’s big project The Immortal Ashwatthama with producers Ronnie Screwvala and director Aditya Dhar.
However when I touched base with Karan he completely denied any plans of a new film with Vicky Kaushal. Karan says, “No not at all. There is no film with Vicky Kaushal as of now.”
Karan is currently busy looking after his mother who has undergone two complicated surgeries. “She’s back home and recovering well. Still in pain. But that will take a few days,” says the dutiful son.
On the work front, Vicky Kaushal, who recently completed nine years in Bollywood, will next be seen in Shoojit Sircar's Sardar Udham Singh and Mr Lele. He also has Meghna Gulzar’s Sam Bahadur and Yash Raj Films’ upcoming family comedy with Manushi Chhillar, which will be directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya. Meanwhile, Karan will return to the director’s chair with 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani', which stars Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan, Shabana Azmi, Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh.
