Rahul came into the limelight when his name cropped up in connection with 2008 Mumbai terror accused David Headley. Headley had revealed in police interrogation that he had befriended Rahul in a gymnasium.
He was later roped in as a contestant in the fourth season of controversial reality show 'Bigg Boss'. For long Rahul was waiting to get a break in movies. And now he will be seen opposite a new girl in the film.
"We don't want to give him (Rahul) a regular launch, so we are working hard on the script. It's a new beginning for Rahul and we are looking for a new girl. As far as Rahul is concerned he is ready to be moulded," she said.
Meanwhile, Mahesh Bhatt and Soni Razdan's daughter Alia is making her debut with Karan Johar's 'Student of The Year'.
