Will Alia and Varun’s dates issue delay ‘Shiddat’?

There have been a lot of reports about Karan Johar’s production venture ‘Shiddat’ which will be directed by Abhishek Varman. Reportedly, the film stars Sridevi, Sanjay Dutt, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead roles. Well, recently even Manish Malhotra had confirmed that he is working on a period film starring these actors. The designer had said, “I am working on a period film starring Varun and Alia, Sanjay Dutt, Sridevi, Aditya Roy Kapur, so that’s a big cast. It will be a period film of a period I feel close to. It is during partition between 1945 to 1947.”

However, according to a report in DNA After Hrs, the movie won’t kickstart before mid-2018 as Alia and Varun are quite busy. A source said, “Sridevi and Aditya are free, but Varun begins shooting for Shoojit Sircar’s film in October after which he has YRF’s ‘Sui Dhaaga’. On the other hand, Alia is now shooting for ‘Raazi’ and then has ‘Gully Boy’ with Ranveer Singh. So where’s the time to begin ‘Shiddat’ now?”

Well, the star cast of ‘Shiddat’ looks damn interesting and it will surely be a grand film. While there are many period films being made in Bollywood with the backdrop of partition, it will be interesting to see what ‘Shiddat’ will offer.

Talking about Sridevi, she made her Bollywood comeback after a gap of around four and a half years with the film ‘MOM’. When we had met her for an interview, and had asked her about her next film after ‘MOM’, the actress had said, “Well, you all will come to know. But, definitely it won’t take four years this time that much I can promise you.” (Also Read: Sanjay Dutt and Sridevi to reunite after 25 years for this movie…)
