After a lot of speculations, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment finally announced their next venture with Dangal (2016) helmer, Nitesh Tiwari, on May 24. However, the makers did not reveal the cast of the film on its announcement day. But if some insiders are to be believed, Nitesh has roped in ‘Raabta’ (2017) actor Sushant Singh Rajput for the lead role of an engineering student in his movie. And now reports are coming in that the director has finalized the female lead as well. According to reports, Shraddha Kapoor might be cast opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in the movie.
As per a source, Shraddha has met the team a couple of times in the past few days and is likely to sign the project soon. “The actress has had multiple meetings with the makers and is keen to come on board the film but is yet to sign on the dotted line.”
To be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala in association with Fox Star Studios, the untitled film is expected to begin its production as soon as the makers are planning to release it on 30th August 2019. Sushant and Shraddha have never worked together before and that could be an exciting pairing for the audience. More details on the project are awaited.
Meanwhile, Sushant Singh Rajput is busy with his forthcoming film ‘Kedarnath’. ‘Drive’, ‘Son Chiriya’ and ‘Chanda Mama Door Ke’ are some of his other projects. Shraddha, on the other hand, will next be seen in Shree Narayan Singh’s ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’, and ‘Saaho’. Her next projects include ‘Stree’ and ‘Saina’.
