It’s safe to say that 2017 was an excellent year for Rajkummar Rao. Despite riding on back to back hits, the actor isn’t stopping anytime soon. And same is the case with Shraddha Kapoor. Although her films haven’t done as well as Rao’s, she does have a few projects in her kitty like the biopic on Indian badminton champion Saina Nehwal, that have got us more than excited.
But the news that came in today is like the cherry on top of the cake, because we are all for watching fresh pairings in Bollywood movies.
We recently learned that producer Dinesh Vijan is coming on board to co-produce a horror- comedy with Krishna DK and Raj Nidimoru. The three previously worked together for ‘Go Goa Gone’ and we all know how well that ended.

However, that isn’t even the good part. The fact that the horror-comedy would be starring Rajkummar Rao made us and his fans ecstatic as it would be the first time Rao would be starring in a movie of this not-so-common genre. The female lead, though was not finalized and the team was busy scouting.
And it looks like their hunt has finally ended with Shraddha Kapoor. Both the actors confirmed the news through their Twitter accounts and evidently, they cannot be more excited.
Very excited to share that I’ll be working with 1 of my favourite actors @RajkummarRao & the hilarious director duo Raj & DK for a 1st of its kind horror-comedy!ðŸ™ƒ @MaddockFilms

Honestly, the “out-of-the-box, raucous horror-comedy” part has got us hooked. But it looks like we will have to wait a long time as both the actors have way too many prior commitments.
The film is expected to go on floors in the first week of January 2018. Other details of the movie have been kept under wraps.
Shraddha recently wrapped up the Hyderabad shoot schedule for her upcoming movie ‘Saaho’ opposite ‘Baahubali’ star Prabhas. She is also simultaneously preparing for the biopic on Saina Nehwal.

On the other hand, Rao is currently working on ‘Fanney Khan’ opposite Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anil Kapoor and will also be seen opposite Sonam Kapoor in ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’.
Looks like both the actors are on a roll!
