After his film Good Newzz delivered well at the box, reports about him signing a film alongside Manoj Bajpai came afloat. The film is titled Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari. Now, according to fresh buzz, Diljit has now locked his next Bollywood project with his Soorma director Shaal Ali for a quirky romcom based on male pregnancy.
According to a source, the film is a love story that has the male lead getting pregnant. A Punjabi film on similar lines has already been made but the source clarifies this isn't a remake as the narrative of both the films is quite different.
"Only the male pregnancy angle is similar but Shaad's film is more of a love story that ends up in a comedy of errors. When Shaad called Diljit and narrated him the whole idea, he absolutely loved it. In fact, he immediately agreed to do the film," added the source.
The dates and further plan of action will be decided once Diljit returns from the US. The makers are looking at casting a popular actress from the younger generation opposite him.
On the other hand, his Udta Punjab co-star Kareena Kapoor and husband Saif Ali Khan have put all speculations to rest by announcing the arrival of their new family member. Announcing the news of Kareena's second pregnancy, the couple shared a statement, “We are very pleased to announce that we are expecting an addition to our family !! Thank you to all our well-wishers for all their love and support.”
Kareena and Saif tied the knot in 2012 and turned parents to Taimur on December 20, 2016.
Seems like pregnancy is the new 'IN' thing in Bollywood!
