The last time Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor shared screen space, it was for Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider (2014). Shahid and Shraddha’s jodi was liked by the audience, but they didn’t sign any more films together. Now, it looks like the two Kapoors may be cast together. The makers of Batti Gul Meter Chalu are in talks with Shraddha for the project to be directed by Shree Narayan Singh.
After the controversial Padmavat, Shahid Kapoor will next be seen in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha director Shree Narayan’s film, Batti Gul Meter Chalu. While the makers haven’t zeroed in on the female lead as yet, several names have been doing the rounds.
Earlier, there were reports of Katrina Kaif taking up the role. However, the Tiger Zinda Hai actress denied these rumours, recently.
And now if a report in DNA is to be believed, Shraddha Kapoor seems like a strong contender for the role. “The makers recently got in touch with Shraddha. She has been briefed about the role. The producers were looking for an A-list heroine to be cast opposite Shahid, who plays a lawyer in the film. However, it will require some prep. Katrina couldn’t sign the film because she didn’t have the time to do so,” a source told.
If Shraddha does take on this project, she will have a very strong line-up to boast of. The actress, who is shooting for Saaho with Prabhas, also has the Saina Nehwal biopic on her slate this year.
