Delhi Belly writer pens for YRF
Akshat Verma, who shot to fame writing the script of Aamir Khan Productions’ adult comedy Delhi Belly (2011), that starred Imran Khan, Kunal Roy Kapur and Vir Das in the lead, will now pen a script for Yash Raj Films (YRF).
A close associate of Verma reveals that the production house has asked Verma to write a thriller. “If Aditya Chopra likes the script, they will turn it into a film,” says the source.
Verma, a film student at UCLA (University of California Los Angeles), was not available to divulge details. But Rafiq Gangjee, vice-president marketing of YRF confirms, “Akshat is writing a script for us. There are no further details at this moment.”
Meanwhile, Verma, the man behind the lyrics of hit song Bhaag DK Bose, is also set to wield the megaphone for the first time. It was reported that UTV Motion Pictures has roped him for a comic thriller, which Verma says won’t be a sequel to Delhi Belly.
