Bollywood actor Sidharth Malhotra, who will be seen next in 'Jabariya Jodi’ opposite Parineeti Chopra, has joined hands with ‘Murder’ director Anurag Basu. Reportedly, the ‘Ek Villain’ actor has teamed up with Basu for the sequel of his 2007 film ‘Life In A... Metro’. As per reports, Abhishek Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao will also be a part of the film. No official announcement has been made yet neither by either of them about the same.
Recently, Anurag Basu also joined hands with Bhushan Kumar of T-Series, for a multi starrer film which is a relationship drama. One can keep guessing if the two might have teamed up for the sequel. However, trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed this news on Twitter on August 14. The story of ‘Life In A.. Metro’ is set in the metro city of Mumbai. The story revolved around nine different individuals, with all of them facing some issues in their relationships. However, everyone is connected to each other, in some or the other way. ‘Life In A... Metro’ starred Dharmendra, Nafisa Ali, Shilpa Shetty, Shiney Ahuja, Kay Kay Menon, Kangana Ranaut, Sharman Joshi, Konkona Sen Sharma and Irrfan Khan. Some songs like ‘In Dino’, ‘Alvida', 'Baatein Kuch Ankahee Si’, to name a few were some of the popular tracks of that time and topped the list of chartbusters. The tracks of the movie were composed by Pritam. The film also bagged several awards like the Filmfare Awards and Screen Awards, to name a few.
