If there’s one film that is going to stay with Sidharth Malhotra and is forever etched in his career, it has to be ‘Shershaah’. The film not only help establish Sidharth Malhotra as one of the top actors in the industry but also brought him closer to the audience with a film that touched everybody’s hearts. And this is why, today, he is one of the busiest actors in the industry.
And if one managed to get over Shershaah or, at least, move on for a while, one would know that it was only a month ago that Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions announced the film ‘Yodha’ with Sidharth. However, the hunt for the lead actress was still on. Now, the good news is that finally, this search is over.
Disha Patani and Raashii Khanna are roped in for the film. They will be seen opposite Sidharth.

Interestingly, this is the same film in which Shahid Kapoor was reportedly going to be seen with Disha. However, Shahid had distanced himself from the project for some reason and after this, Sidharth joined the film.
For those wondering who Raashii is, she is a popular South Indian actress. She started her acting career with John Abraham’s ‘Madras Cafe’.
Apart from ‘Yodha’, Raashii will be seen in the web series of Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK. She is also a part of Ajay Devgn’s ‘Rudra: The Age of Darkness’.
Whereas, Disha, too, has her bag full. She is playing the lead character in Ashima Chibber directorial ‘KTina’. The movie is produced by Ekta Kapoor. Apart from this, she is also going to be seen in the film ‘Ek Villain Returns’.
