Ali Abbas Zafar has made high packed action films like Ek Tha Tiger, Gunday and Sultan among others. He’s helmed each of these films, but produced none. Now, the director is taking to film production, as one of his assistant directors will helm the first film under his banner.
Confirming Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Panday in lead roles, a source told a leading daily, “Ishaan and Ali have been discussing the film for a while and things have now fallen into place. It’s a love story and is expected to go on the floors by the year-end.”
Khatter made his film debut with Beyond The Clouds and later went on to do Dhadak. On the other hand, Panday made her debut with Student Of The Year 2 and is now shooting for the remake of Pati Patni Aur Woh.
The source also added, “Since the Maximum City-centric film is a fresh take on the romantic genre and revolves around young people, Ali was keen to cast actors who are a big draw with youngsters. Both Ishaan and Ananya have impressed with their first films but have not worked together so it’s a new jodi as well.”
Well, this could be a fresh and breezy pairing!
