There were rumours of a cold war between Farhan Akhtar and Aditya Roy Kapur due to the former's alleged closeness with Shraddha Kapoor. Aditya and Shraddha were rumoured to be in a relationship, till Shraddha grew 'fond' of Farhan Akhtar, who split from his wife of 16 years.

According to a story in DNA Mohit Suri is planning his next film with Farhan Akhtar in the lead. The director had revealed to this paper, "Goldie (Behl) and I approached Farhan recently with my script based on a father-son relationship. He really liked it. I need another actor for a role that’s parallel to Farhan’s."

We hear the filmmaker has finally found his second hero. Says a source, "Mohit has decided to cast Farhan and Aditya (Roy Kapur) together. He needed a younger actor and when he narrated the script to Adi, he loved it and immediately said yes. Also, after having worked together in 'Aashiqui 2', both the actor and the director wanted to repeat the magic and possibly the success of their last film together. Farhan and Aditya will have separate tracks that will eventually come together."

There were reports of stress between Farhan and Aditya because of Shraddha Kapoor. But that’s untrue. The source adds, "In fact, Adi and Farhan get along really well. They are excited about working together. The filming begins in January next year." The source adds, "Farhan is prepping and building his body for the film. Adi will also have a lot of bare-body shots, so he’s also working out at the gym every day."

It would be a casting coup of sorts if Shraddha is roped in as the female lead. But the actress told this paper that it’s all up in the air. "I have not even been offered or spoken to about any film with Mohit," says Shraddha.
