Even before her debut movie, Prithviraj has hit the big screen, former Miss World, Manushi Chhillar has apparently bagged her second B-town outing. She's looking forward to her pairing with the current sensation, Vicky Kaushal and it's a comedy backed by Yash Raj Films. The official announcement is expected to come out on September 27, when YRF plans to release its huge list of upcoming releases to mark its 50th-anniversary celebration. While there were reports of Vicky coming on board for the production house's next, his stint with comedy is the latest update and would be refreshing to witness.

Speaking about roping Manushi for this Kaushal starrer, a trade source in his conversation with Mid-Day said, "Manushi had been zeroed in on for Prithviraj last year after she delivered a fantastic audition. It was the same audition tape that helped her bag this film, which is likely to be helmed by Dhoom 3 director Vijay Krishna Acharya. The decision to bring Manushi on board was taken last week as head honcho Aditya Chopra was confident that her pairing with Vicky will grab eyeballs."
