A few days ago, there were rumours of actor Kartik Aaryan dating Ananya Panday who is set to make her debut in Student Of The Year 2 opposite Tara Sutaria and Tiger Shroff. Now, according to a report in DNA, it appears that the two of them will be seen together in a remake of the film Pati, Patni Aur Woh.

“Ananya has been signed on for the Pati Patni Aur Woh remake, which is being produced by Juno Chopra. She will essay the role that was portrayed by Ranjeeta Kaur in the original. The idea is to make it a modern version of the classic with a young cast. The makers wanted someone cute as well as glamorous for the part and she fit the bill. When the script was narrated to her, she was in splits and gave bulk dates, almost immediately,” a source told the newspaper.

Regarding the decision to cast Aaryan, a source also added: “He was the top contender for the male lead as he’s popular with the youth today. The makers wanted a hero, who has a boy-next-door vibe and is also great with comedy, since it’s a humorous take on extra-marital affairs. So, the Sonu Ke Titu Ke Sweety actor was their first choice. Kartik and Ananya have already done a few readings together.”

Makes one wonder if these rumours are just another of the tried-and-tested PR stunts ‘leaked’ to drum up interest.
