Ever since Sara Ali Khan made her debut with Kedarnath last year, her name has cropped up with respect to several films. Earlier this year, it was being speculated that Sara is being roped in opposite Vicky Kaushal in Shoojit Sircar's Udhan Singh biopic. But that turned out to be a false alarm. Now, we can confirm that the two Gen-Y stars will indeed be sharing screen space soon in another movie.

Last week, we had exclusively informed you that Ekta Kapoor has green lit Anees Bazmee's next directorial venture, after Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Vicky Kaushal has been roped in to play the lead in the comedy. A source tells us, "Anees Bazmee wanted a young and fresh cast for this buddy comedy, which is on the lines of a mad cap entertainer that he's known for. It's a comedy of errors and Vicky has already given his nod to the film. He approached Sara Ali Khan because the director feels that she's a terrific performer and people haven't still seen the comical side to her."

It was then that Sara met the Ready filmmaker. "Sara loved the script. It's an out and out comedy and Ekta is a family friend. Her mother Amrita Singh is very close to Ekta and they were planning to launch Sara anyway in films with Kedarnath. But after a lot of trouble, she had to cop out of the film but she had always promised Amrita that she would work with Sara very soon. It's finally happening. The film rolls out with Sara and Vicky sometime later next year." 

Interestingly, this isn't the first time Sara and Vicky had been approached for a movie. Another insider tells us, "A lot of filmmakers actually were looking to cast both Vicky and Sara together. Farhad Samji at one point was planning Bachchan Pandey with both the actors but the team finally decided on having Akshay Kumar as the main lead."
