Kareena Kapoor-Ayushmann Khurrana To Star In Meghna Gulzar’s Film, ‘Daayra’

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Ayushmann Khurrana will share screen for the first time in Meghna Gulzar's upcoming crime thriller film.

Meghna Gulzar’s recent film ‘Sam Bahadur’ saw success at the box office. Following his role in ‘Raazi’, Vicky Kaushal portrayed Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw in this biographical war drama. Despite competing with Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Animal’, ‘Sam Bahadur’ didn’t match its earnings but received acclaim from critics for Kaushal’s performance and the story. Meghna Gulzar’s next project, ‘Daayra’, stars Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead role.

Subsequently, they were apprehended and later shot dead by the Hyderabad police during a supposed reconstruction of the crime scene. In 2022, the Supreme Court ruled that the encounter had been staged.
