After her last film, Bareilly Ki Barfi was well received by the audiences, Kriti Sanon seems like she’s out of the hangover of Raabta’s failure, as she signed up for another film with director Dinesh Vijan titled Arjun Patiala. The filmmaker who did not see success with Raabta is now set to return with a comedy film, and this time Kriti Sanon will be seen opposite Punjabi actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh.
As per reports in Mumbai Mirror, Kriti is being cautious about her choice of films after her success with Bareilly Ki Barfi. And to try her hand at comedy, she will be seen romancing Diljit Dosanjh in the upcoming production. Kriti took to Twitter to confirm the news and wrote, “This one’s gonna be a mad fun ride!#ArjunPatiala ..Larger than Life! Cant wait to start rolling.” The film which is a content-driven comedy film, sees Kriti play the role of a journalist in the upcoming film, whereas Diljit will be seen as a quirky, small-town guy.

A source told Mirror, “It will be shot in Punjab, the makers are leaving for a recce soon and hopes to zero in on a director shortly,” Kriti, who will share screen space with Diljit for the first time, added, “I love watching good comedies and while shooting for Bareilly Ki Barfi I realised that I enjoyed being a part of this world too. I’m looking forward to shooting with Diljit.” Diljit this far has already worked with the likes of Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, and Anushka Sharma in Bollywood, and seems to be making himself a corner of his own in the industry.
