Rishabh Sinha, who was the first runner-up of controversial reality show "Bigg Boss 9," has bagged a Bollywood film.

Titled "Ishq Vs Luv," the film will see Rishabh romancing Afroz Khan, a former beauty pageant winner. "Ishq Vs Luv" is a romantic comedy film, produced by Arsalaan Khan, Bollywood Life reports.

Rishabh, who is quite excited about his Bollywood debut, confirmed the news. "Yes, I am doing this film. I know Afroz and the makers since quite some time. We are good friends and everything is going smoothly," Rishabh told the entertainment portal.

The report further stated that the film will revolve around the lead couple who will be ignorant of their feelings for each other. "Ishq Vs Luv" will be shot in different locales across the country and in fact, the first schedule of the film has already been completed.

Recently, Rishabh was approached to play the role of grown-up Ashoka in popular TV show "Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat." However, no confirmation has been made on it. "I can't confirm anything as there are many projects lined up," Rishabh had earlier told India Forums when asked about the show.

Rishabh, who entered "Bigg Boss 9" as the first wild card, soon became one of the most entertaining contestants on the show. The "Qubool Hai" actor's witty and kind-hearted nature garnered him a massive fan following.
