The upcoming film Toxic, starring Kannada actor Yash and directed by Geetu Mohandas, has been a hot topic for months. Speculation about Yash's co-star has fueled the buzz, a common tactic to generate pre-release excitement. Several names surfaced, including the established actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, who recently announced she’s doing a South Indian movie. However, as per Zoom TV, Kiara Advani has been roped in opposite Yash for Toxic. Did Kareena Kapoor Khan Just Confirm Being a Part of Yash’s Toxic?
