Director Shimit Amin, who helmed films like Chak De India (2007) and Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year (2009), is reportedly in talks with multiple producers on various subjects that he wants to work on.
As per a report in Pinkvilla, Amin has approached Kartik Aaryan with a idea of a period musical that he feels the actor will be perfectly suited for. A source close to the development told the portal, “Kartik is among the actors who Shimit feels would fit the world of his period musical to the T. He had 3 to 4 meetings with Kartik to date and the actor has also shown interest in the script. More meetings are expected to take place in the weeks to follow.”
