Since word of his directorial debut spread earlier this year, Aryan Khan has been the centre of attention. Stardom is said to be the working title for the highly anticipated web series from B-Town. Over 800 people have auditioned for the lead role that a first-time director has been searching for for quite some time. It has just come to light that Lakshya Lalwani may be Khan's choice for the major role.
The six-part series, reportedly centred on the Hindi film industry, was supposed to begin filming this month, according to industry insiders. However, there has been a few-week delay.
A reliable source told Midday that the casting procedure took a very long time. Aryan has very specific tastes in actors. Those who performed well in the preliminary auditions went on to participate in a series of screen tests and in-person interviews, totaling six to eight times. Lakshya is now in first place. By the end of the weekend, we will have arrested three additional actors.
Lalwani had a few guest-starring roles on TV shows under his belt before he became a household name as the lead in Porus. He was set to make his Bollywood debut in Karan Johar's Dostana 2 alongside Kartik Aaryan and Janhvi Kapoor in 2019. In 2021, however, Lalwani was roped in for Johar's Bedhadak, and reportedly, it has been shelved. There has been no action yet.
Aryan Khan will direct the movie Stardom, which will focus on the entertainment industry. The web series will consist of six episodes. The series is now in production, with a 2023 release date projected. According to reports, Shah Rukh Khan and Ranveer Singh are likely to have cameos in the series.
Other than that, Aryan Khan has recently directed his father, Shah Rukh, in an advertisement film.
