Hrithik Roshan has given the nod to his next film after Kaabil. The actor will be seen in Kabir Khan’s untitled next, being produced by Sajid Nadiadwala.

Bigger in scale
This is the film Kabir will take up post Salman Khan-starrer Tubelight. “It will be a high-octane action-romance-drama and could well be one of the most expensive films made in Bollywood so far. Much of the film will be shot overseas, and will be bigger in scale and vision than Kabir’s other films. The film rolls this September, but the leading lady is yet to be finalised."

Sajid-Hrithik’s history
Incidentally, Sajid signed Hrithik for one of his productions seven years ago, helmed by Imtiaz Ali. “That film, however, never got made. However, Hrithik has said yes to the new project and loves its script and scale,” adds our source.

Prep for pre-production on
Currently busy in post-production of Tubelight (out on Eid this year), Kabir is already prepping for pre-production of the Hrithik film. “Kabir and Hrithik have been in touch over the last couple of months and both are excited to be working together for the first time. Once he completes Kabir’s film, Hrithik will be ready to shoot for his father Rakesh Roshan’s film Krrish 4,” concludes the source.
