Kriti Kharbanda seems to be on a roll. After bagging a role in the big-budget comedy franchise, Housefull 4, she has come onboard Pagalpanti as well. The film is an out and out comedy directed by Anees Bazmee. The filmmaker is known for his comedy blockbusters like Welcome, No Entry, Singh Is Kinng and others. Pagalpanti stars John Abraham and Pulkit Samrat in lead roles. Anees’ last film Mubarakan was also a hit at the box office. Pagalpanti will be shot largely in London and Leeds. Kriti Kharbanda got a lot of appreciation for her performance in Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana. People loved her chemistry with Rajkummar Rao in the film.
In December, Mumbai Mirror had reported that Ileana D’Cruz was in the running to be cast in the film along with John Abraham. It would be a fresh pairing. However, Ileana did not confirm it. The film is produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak, Bhushan Kumar and Abhishek Pathak. Anees was in London in December to apparently do recce for the film. Kriti Kharbanda was one of the top leading ladies of the Kannada industry before she stepped into Bollywood. She has also worked in Bruce Lee with Ram Charan.
