Fawad Khan and Katrina Kaif

Fawad Khan and Katrina Kaif will co-star together in Karan Johar’s next production, a love story set in North India.

MUMBAI — Katrina Kaif and Fawad Khan will team up in a Karan Johar production written and directed by Aditya Dhar. Dhar has also been a lyricist, mainly with Raghav Sachar as music director.

Kaif and Khan star in this love story set in North India (where else?) that unfolds against the backdrop of a big, fat Punjabi wedding (what else?). In theory, the genre does not even excite NRIs anymore, so it will really have to be novel and fresh to strike a chord.

Khan will be by wife Sadaf’s side in Pakistan, as he is expecting his second baby in October. The film will roll once he is back in India. The shoot will therefore begin in Delhi sometime in November.

This will be a story of Khan’s and Kaif’s quirky Punjabi families and a celebration of North Indian culture and revelry. After Delhi, the team will move abroad. The locations are yet to be finalized and will be decided after Johar returns from the U.S.

Amaal Mallik, who has been part of Dharma’s recent projects (“Kapoor and Sons,” “Baar Baar Dekho”) is reportedly on board too.
