Yami Gautam, who is presently shooting for Sriram Raghavan’s edgy thriller ‘Badlapur’ with Varun Dhawan, has been signed for a musical, love story titled ‘Junooniyat’.
The actress is paired opposite Pulkit Samrat, who was last seen in ‘O Teri’ and has the upcoming ‘Dolly Ki Doli’ with Sonam Kapoor. It is the first time that the two actors have being paired together.
The musical is being produced by T-Series and will be helmed by Vivek Agnihotri, who has directed films like ‘Chocolate’ and more recently, ‘Hate Story’. Says Agnihotri, “The film is set in four different states and will be shot in Srinagar, Uttarkashi, Shimla, Patiala, Amritsar and will have a very desi flavour.
Both Yami and Pulkit will be seen in very interesting, never-seen-before avatars. Yash Chopra is my guru and I am very inspired by the love stories that he has made. ‘Junooniyat’ is also a deep love story that will make you laugh, cry and feel with the characters,” said Agnihotri, adding that the film is scheduled to take off in November this year.
