And the cat is out of the bag! If you haven’t heard already, Katrina Kaif’s sister Isabelle Kaif who was earlier said to make her debut opposite Sooraj Pancholi in Time to Dance will now mark her first with Aayush Sharma in Kwatha. The film is being directed by Karan Lalit Butani and will be an adventure film based on true incidences of the Indian Army. In fact, Salman Khan himself took to social media to share the news and fans couldn’t be more thrilled. He wrote, “#IsabelleKaif and @aaysharma to star in a film inspired by true events involving the Indian army in #Kwatha @karanlbutani”
Even Aayush Sharma and Isabelle Kaif took their Instagram handles to break the news. While Aayush welcomed Isabelle onboard and wrote, “Is khoobsurat kahaani ki shuruaat bahut hi khoobsurat andaaz Mai hui hai.
Welcome on board @isakaif”, the stunner is “super excited to finally be able to tell you that I have joined @kwathafilm! Thank you @aaysharma and @karanlalitbutani for the amazingly warm welcome! ??.”
Aayush who came under the limelight with Loveyatri in 2018 alongside Zarina Wahab will reportedly be seen portraying the role of an army officer and has undergone intensive preparation for the role. Isabelle, on the other hand, has undergone training for four years at the New York based acting school, Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.
It is being said that both the actors are currently undergoing intensive workshops for the film. They will soon be visiting places in the North-East for more research. Kwatha is set to go on floors in September this year and will release in 2020. Director Bhutani was quoted saying, “Bhutani said, “We are excited to announce Aayush Sharma and Isabelle Kaif as the leads of Kwatha. Kwatha is a village on the border of India and Mynamar. While it is based on true events, the plot is unconventional, which made actors like Aayush and Isabelle perfect for a film like this.”
