Ekta Kapoor's popular TV series Pavitra Rishta stars have catapulated their fame to land big Bollywood breaks. Sushant Singh Rajput is already a A-lister, Ankita Lokhandwe made it with Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika and now its Asha Negi's turn .
Reports suggest that the actress has bagged Anurag Basu’s next film and she will be paired opposite Abhishek Bachchan.
The film, described as a dark comic anthology, will also feature Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh. Basu says other than the fact that the film will have four intersecting stories like "Life In A...Metro", the new project is entirely different and not a sequel to the 2007 drama.

Cannot express how much happiness and gratitude all your sweet birthday messages brought into my life, Thankyou all!!:) meanwhile I managed to detangle myself from the world and was floating in the vibe of the mountains where I had one of the best birthdays spentðŸ’› Yayyyyyy!!!â˜ºï¸Â
Basu told PTI, “The genre is different. Life In A Metro had drama, love story and it revolved around multiple stories about relationships. This is not that. This film has a bit of crime and black humour in it. The only common thing is all four stories are intersecting and affecting each other. I don't want to confuse the audience and call it as a sequel."
Asha Negi is yet to confirm the development, as she is in Himachal Pradesh, ringing in her birthday with her beau Rithvik Dhanjani. Asha has also been a part of shows like Bade Acche Lagte Hain, Ek Mutthi Aasmaan, ALTBalaji's web-series Baarish and Khatron Ke Khiladi 6. She and beau Rithvik Dhanjani are also winners of Nach Baliye 6.
Basu's film is scheduled to be released in February next year.
