After Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor signs his next with Shree Narayan Singh who had directed Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Toilet Ek Prem Katha.
Singh spoke to a leading daily and said, “With films like Kaminey, Jab We Met, Haider and Udta Punjab, Shahid Kapoor has definitely proved his mettle as an actor. Having said that, his star presence is undeniable and I look forward to working with him.”
Prernaa Arora of KriArj Entertainment was delighted to be on board as a producer of the film. “We really enjoyed making TEPK together earlier and know that Shree Narayan Singh’s sensibilities as a filmmaker has given us the confidence that we have another winner on our hands. Shahid is one of the industry’s finest actors and would completely do justice to the role. We are so excited to be collaborating with him on this one as the role is tailor-made for someone with his talent and calibre. Together, Shahid and Shree, will form a brilliant combo, a winner for us, for sure!” she said.
Apart from KriArj, even T-Series has hopped in as a producer of the film. Bhushan Kumar stated, “Shree Narayan Singh is a director who balances strong message driven film with entertainment by making it commercially viable. And Shahid Kapoor is an actor par excellence. He is always the best version of himself when he enthralls us with the various roles he chooses to play on screen.”
While the title and other cast members of the film are yet to be announced, Shahid Kapoor says this is the kind of script he was looking for after Padmavati.
