Deepika Padukone and Kartik Aaryan to play Radha -Krishna in Imtiaz Ali’s next?

Deepika Padukone and Kartik Aaryan’s act at the airport, performing ‘Dheeme Dheeme’, led to speculations that the duo will soon be cast in a film. It would definitely be a fresh pairing for the silver screen and seems like Imtiaz Ali has grabbed the opportunity. Deepika and Kartik are keen to play Radha and Lord Krisha in Imtiaz’s next offering and since Radha was older to Krishna — Deepika is 34 to Kartik’s 29, the couple’s casting seems apt. Deepika and Kartik have been reportedly warming up on social media and in person, to create a buzz about their chemistry ahead of their onscreen collaboration.

In 2018, the filmmaker had announced that he is all set to call the shots for a film that will immortalize the love story of Radha and Lord Krishna. Imtiaz will write, direct and co-produce the film. The filmmaker had stated, “I have always been fascinated by the eternal love story of Radha and Krishna. In all of Indian folklore, I know of no other story, which is so intensely personal and yet has such an epic scale. It has been my dream to step into the world of Radha-Krishna.”

For now, Imtiaz and Kartik are gearing up for the release of ‘Love Aaj Kal’ which is scheduled to hit the screens in February.
