According to latest reports, actor Sidharth Malhotra will reunite with Shraddha Kapoor in his upcoming film, titled ‘Shotgun Shaadi’. If these reports turn out to be true, then the duo will share the screen space after a gap of four years, after starring together in the romantic action thriller ‘Ek Villain’ (2014), helmed by Mohit Suri.
We also hear that Shraddha, who is currently shooting for ‘Saaho’ opposite ‘Baahubali’ (2015) star Prabhas, has put one condition on the makers if they want to cast her in the movie. She has, reportedly, requested them to make certain changes in the script of the movie. It is still unclear whether or not the makers have accepted her request.
Talking about ‘Shotgun Shaadi’, the film sees Sidharth Malhotra in the role of a thug. The movie basically revolves around the ill-practice of groom kidnapping which is generally prevalent in the interiors of Bihar. The actor will transform his look to get into the skin of his character in the movie. “Sid will be putting on weight for the film, but only in the form of muscle. He wants to have a fit and toned physique for ‘Shotgun Shaadi’. He has been gymming consistently and has also taken to aqua exercises for the same,” a source reveals, adding, “He has hired a language coach who’s helping him learn a Bihari dialect and get the accent right.”
The work on the script of the movie has begun and Sidharth, too, has started his preparations for the role. If all things fall into place, the team will start rolling in a couple of months from now.
The project is being bankrolled by Ekta Kapoor who had also produced ‘Ek Villain’.
Besides ‘Shotgun Shaadi’, Sidharth Malhotra will also be seen in Karan Johar’s Vikram Batra biopic. Starring Malhotra as Sher Shah Vikram Batra, the film will be directed by Vishnu Varadhan. It will be a co-production between Karan Johar and Shabbir Boxwala.
