A few months ago, it was confirmed that the Shahid Kapoor and Amrita Rao starrer Ishq Vishk will be getting a sequel. The news created a buzz for obvious reasons and everyone has been excited to hear more. What we knew was that the film would be getting a modern touch but the remaining details of the sequel were kept under wraps. In a fresh development however, news has surfaced that Shahid Kapoor’s younger step-brother, Ishaan Khatter is being considered to play the lead role in the sequel.
"The makers are currently working on the script for the movie. Ishq Vishq was very young in nature, and hence, who better than Ishaan Khatter, who exhibits the required charm and innocence for the role. Apparently, the idea has been discussed with Ishaan but that's it,” an insider revealed. As discussions are still at the preliminary stages, no final decision has yet been reached. It would however, be interesting to see how Ishaan takes his brother’s legacy forward with this role. The movie is going to be produced by Ramesh Taurani.
Ishaan Khatter made an impressive debut in Bollywood with Dhadak, in which he starred alongside Janhvi Kapoor. The film was received well by film critics and audiences and fared well at the box office. Ishaan has also signed a web series which is all set to be directed by Vishal Bharadwaj. No other development however, has yet been reported on this front thus far.
Shahid Kapoor on the other hand is reaping success from his latest release, Kabir Singh. The film is a remake of hit Telugu film Arjun Reddy and hit screens worldwide last week. It narrates Kabir and Preeti’s love story and follows Kabir’s journey as an alcoholic surgeon, who goes on a path of self-destruction when Preeti marries someone else.
