Producer Sajid Nadiadwala, who has the rights for the screen adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s novel Two States, has announced that Shah Rukh Khan plays the lead in the film which will be directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. Thus the speculation that Siddharth Anand will direct Two states with Saif Ali Khan have come to rest.
The search is on for the leading lady opposite SRK. The names of Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone have been making the rounds. But sources say that since both these actresses have already paired with SRK in Don 2 and Om Shanti Om, a star who has not acted with SRK will be selected.
There is a strong possibility that either Katrina Kaif or Sonakshi Sinha may get the chance as leading lady in the film Two States.
