Rumours are abuzz that Karan Singh Grover’s (who just recently got married to Bipasha Basu) ex-wife is all set to romance the hottest Khan on screen.

While Zoya is yet to confirm the cast of her next big release, Jennifer’s latest Instagram post has left us wondering if these reports are indeed true

Earlier, Fawad was reported to have replaced Hrithik Roshan for the lead role.

“Zoya has briefed Fawad about the basic premise of the film and the two will meet soon and take their discussion forward,” Pinkvilla quoted a source as saying.

She loved Fawad in Kapoor & Sons and decided to work with him right after watching the film. However, she never had him in mind while writing this film. When Hrithik said no, she was in need for a dashing hero who could also act well. Fawad totally fit the bill,” the source added.

However, Hrithik later denied the report saying, “I can never say no to Zoya. She has not offered me any film recently. But I am sure we’ll be working together soon again,” Pinkvilla reported.
