MUMBAI – Fawad Khan and Sonam Kapoor pair up again for ‘Battle for Bittora’ under the direction of Rhea Kapoor.
As reported by Times of India, the filming rights of best-selling author Anuja Chauhan’s book ‘Battle For Bittora’ have been purchased by Anil Kapoor’s company for a while now.
‘Battle for Bittora’ is a passionate love story between 25-year-old Jinni and Zain Altaf, set against the bitter backdrop of politics in Mumbai.
Jinni (played by Sonam) is a lively, boisterous independent girl who works for an animation studio in Mumbai. However, one fine day, her grandmom calls her back to her native place Bittora and tells her to stand up for the Lok Sabha elections. Jinni agrees and guess who her opponent turns out to be? Of course the irresistibly attractive Zain Altaf Khan (played by Fawad Khan).
Obviously a battle ensues which is also fused with the love between the two young contestants develop during the course of the elections.
