Fatima Sana Shaikh to star opposite Sidharth Malhotra in ‘Shotgun Shaadi’?

After playing an officer in ‘Aiyaary’, Sidharth Malhotra is all set to portray the character of a thug in his next. Titled ‘Shotgun Shaadi’, the film is based on groom-kidnapping phenomenon that is prevalent in the North Indian state. As of now, the movie is in its pre-production stage and also the female lead is yet to be finalised.  Earlier, rumours about Shraddha Kapoor and Parineeti being offered the role were doing the rounds.

While the makers are yet to decide between the two actresses,  there is a new speculation about Fatima Sana Shaikh being roped in. However, an insider told to DNA, “It will be either Parineeti or Shraddha. Fatima isn’t even on the minds of the producer or the director.”  (Also ReadAmitabh Bachchan & Taapsee Pannu to reunite after ‘Pink’?)

Talking about the film, another source said, “It’s a small town love story with edgy characters. As soon as Ekta heard it she immediately reached out to Sidharth. She believes it’s a great role and a perfect film for them to come together. The film is expected to roll in a couple of months. The makers will begin the reccee soon and zero in on a leading lady.”

Only time will tell, which actress will be seen opposite Sidharth Malhotra.
