According to a source, “The team was looking for a pretty girl who can act well. That's when they thought of Isabelle. She was looking for her second film after Time To Dance and when she was narrated this script, she fell in love with the subject. Although there is a slight romantic angle between the two actors, this is more than just a love story. But Isabelle's character has a strong part in motivating Aayush's character forward in Kwatha."
The film is said to be inspired by true events and will show how few incidents change a man’s opinion and perspective on certain things. Aayush will be essaying the role of a police officer in the action-drama film. “It’s a huge honour to play an army officer. I’m really looking forward to start shooting for the film,” Aayush earlier said in a statement.
Isabelle Kaif took to Instagram after the news was confirmed and shared a picture with her co-star. “I am super excited to be able to tell you that I have joined @kwathafilm! Thank you @aaysharmaand @karanlalitbutani for the amazingly warm welcome @cultentertain @purplebullent#kwatha,” she captioned the post.
