He is paired with Parineeti Chopra in "Hasi Toh Phasi", which is being co-produced by Phantom Films and Dharma Production.
"It's by a new director, Vinil Matthew, an ad filmmaker. It's an interesting script, a rom-com different from how SOTY ('Student of the Year') was, a very middle-class, cooler, younger. We will start shooting in April," the 28-year-old said here Monday at the Stardust awards press conference.
He further says it feels like he is doing his first film.
"Parineeti (Chopra) is great, great energy. It is my second film but it actually feels like I am doing my first film. First film chooses you and you choose the second film. So we are becoming the actors that we are," he said.
