Abhijat Joshi has locked the screenplay of Rajkumar Hirani’s upcoming film with Shah Rukh Khan.
Earlier, it was reported that Kanika Dhillon was on board as the writer of the film. However, it seems that Joshi would be taking the film forward with its screenplay and dialogues, according to PinkVilla.
A source told the publication, “Kanika Dhillon and Rajkumar Hirani were trying to crack the script for a while, however, things didn’t work out and eventually, Hirani’s frequent collaborator, Abhijat Joshi took the responsibility of writing. He has masterfully crafted the screenplay of the immigration story over the last one year and things are officially locked now.”
Incidentally, Joshi and Hirani have worked together previously on blockbusters like ‘Munnabhai MBBS’, ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’, ‘3 Idiots’ and ‘Sanju’.
The film is expected to go on the floors in summer 2022, with an extensive shoot schedule planned for Punjab.
