Sanjay, Jacqueline, Sharma in Kwatha?

If the industry buzz is to be believed, Jacqueline Fernandez is being roped in for Aayush Sharma’s next, Kwatha. Salman Khan’s brother-in-law, who made his Bollywood debut with LoveYatri (2018), plays an Army officer. Word is that the makers are also in talks with Sanjay Dutt, reports Mid-day.

Kwatha is being produced by Sunil Jain and Aditya Joshi of Cult Entertainment and directed by Karan Lalit Butani.

Said a source, “It’s an action drama pumped with a lot of emotions where the young actor will be playing an Army Major. Aayush will be seen in a completely new look again and has already started working on his body... ‘Kwatha’ is inspired from true events and will show how a few incidents change his character’s opinion and perspective on certain things.”

“It’s a huge honour to play an Army officer. I’m really looking forward to start shooting for the film,” Aayush told IANS in a statement.

The project is in its initial stages but Jacqueline Fernandez is gung-ho about the action thriller. Last seen in Race 3, Fernandez will next star in the upcoming web film, Mrs Serial Killer. Looks like she is looking at dark subjects for a change in image.

On the other hand, Aayush Sharma is learning Marathi for his role in the Hindi remake of the critically-acclaimed Marathi hit Mulshi Pattern. Mulshi Pattern revolves around farmers taking to a life of crime to escape poverty. Aayush is learning Marathi to get the kind of fluency that his character demands.

“I am watching quite a few videos and also trying to read books in the same language as I want to keep it very real,” Aayush said in a statement. He added, “It is a beautiful language and I always wanted to learn Marathi. Even my staff members fluently speak the language and I am trying learn from them too,” he added.

Mulshi Pattern’s cast comprised Sunil Abhyankar, National award-winning actor Om Bhutkar, Mohan Joshi, and others. The film delves deep into the flaws of the system that turns a farmer into a criminal and a social outcast.
