They scorched the silver screen with their electric chemistry in Khoobsurat and now Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor and Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan will come together once again for the screen adaptation of author Anuja Chauhan's bestseller Battle For Bittora.

The pair have been finalised to play the lead in the movie, which will be produced by Sonam's sister Rhea Kapoor. The filming rights have already been purchased by actor Anil Kapoor's company.
Battle For Bittora is the story of twenty-five-year-old Jinni, who works for an animation studio in Mumbai, and lives a carefree and independent life until her grandmother commands her to contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from their hometown Bittora. She finds herself pitted against the irresistibly attractive ex-royal Zain Altaf Khan. What ensues is a bitter battle between the two young contestants, complicated by their passionate love story.
While Fawad has played the aristocratic prince to utmost perfection in Khoobsurat, Sonam will no longer be the royal misfit she played in her previous movie. The protagonist in the novel represents the illustrious Pande dynasty of Pavit Pradesh and Sonam will most likely be seen donning a regal look in the film.
