Actor Vicky Kaushal is likely to star opposite Alia Bhatt in Meghna Gulzars next film based on Harinder Sikkas book "Calling Sehmat".
After her critically acclaimed film "Talvar", Meghna is working on her next project based on Sikkas book.
The film will apparently revolve around a Kashmiri woman married to an Army officer across the border who provides Indian intelligence with invaluable information during the 1971 Indo-Pak war.
"He (Vicky) is in talks for the film with Alia. The film needed a performer like him. But we are yet to sign on dotted lines and figure out the dates and other things," sources close to the project told PTI.
The yet-to-be-titled film will be jointly produced by Junglee Pictures and Dharma Productions, and is likely to go on floors by next month.
The "Masaan" actor is currently working in Sanjay Dutt biopic, directed by Rajkumar Hirani.
