According to a report published in a popular daily, ace filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj and actor Shahid Kapoor are joining forces once again after ‘Kaminey’ (2009) and ‘Haider’ (2014). Whenever the duo has teamed up in the past, the union has been quite fruitful for both of them. The same they wish to replicate with their hat-trick collaboration as well.
Apart from Shahid Kapoor, the untitled film may also feature newcomer Sanya Malhotra who rose to fame after playing Aamir Khan’s wrestler daughter in ‘Dangal’ (2016). Malhotra is already doing a film with Bhardwaj, titled ‘Chhuriyaan’, which is expected to mount the shooting floor in next couple of months. If she agrees to do the new project with Shahid Kapoor, it will mark her second association with the noted filmmaker in a row.
“Recently, Sanya Malhotra had met Vishal in his office. The meeting was a prolonged one, as Vishal was giving her a short narration of her character and the story”, reveals a source adding, “Sanya has okayed the offer, but she is yet to sign on the dotted line”.
Though no one knows what the film is going to be all about, the same report says that it might be based on one of William Shakespeare’s popular novels.
Shahid Kapoor is, meanwhile, busy shooting for his next film ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ with Yami Gautam and Shraddha Kapoor. He is also in talks to star in KriArj Entertainment’s ‘Woh Kaun Thi’ remake.
