Tentatively titled ‘Sarzameen’, the upcoming film is said to be an emotional thriller film wherein Ibrahim will be seen in a pivotal role. Ibrahim has already started preparing for his debut role and he has been working diligently on his physique to look authentic for his part. He has also reportedly been going for readings and workshops.
Earlier unconfirmed reports had suggested that the film might also see Kajol in a pivotal role opposite Prithviraj Sukumaran. The story is reportedly set against the backdrop of terrorism in Kashmir and revolves around defense forces. Speculation is rife that the film might be directed by Boman Irani’s son Kayoze Irani who had earlier helmed the short called ‘Ankahi’ from ‘Ajeeb Daastaans’. However, there hasn’t been any official confirmation yet.
Apart from making his acting debut, Ibrahim was earlier in the news as several reports suggested he had been assisting Karan Johar for ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’, which has Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the lead.
Interestingly, Ibrahim’s sister Sara Ali khan had also made her debut with ‘Simmba’, which was backed by Dharma Productions.
Meanwhile, on personal front, last year Ibrahim was in the news for his dating rumours with Palak Tiwari as both of them were spotted together hanging with friends.
