EXCLUSIVE: Will Shraddha Kapoor opt out of Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Shotgun Shaadi’?
Ekta Kapoor has decided to get her winning pair from ‘Ek Villain‘ to reunite for another film under her production. The TV czarina is now bankrolling a project with Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead. The film has been titled Shotgun Shaadi and is expected to start rolling around June.
‘Shotgun Shaadi’, as the name suggests, revolves around the issue of groom kidnapping in Bihar. Back in the state, a lot of local goons abduct potential grooms and get them forcefully married to girls, to prevent them from getting any dowry. Sidharth plays one of the goons whereas Shraddha plays a girl who eventually falls for him.
But we hear that there’s trouble brewing for the makers already. Shraddha has reportedly asked for several changes in the script and even demanded that her role should be altered according to her choice. (Also Read:WHATT! Varun Dhawan & Sidharth Malhotra to be seen in ‘Student Of The Year 2’?)
She wants a bigger role than Sidharth in the drama and the team has already started making a few alterations, although they are very clear that they won’t change the script in any way which hinders the storytelling and in no uncertain terms, will they chop the hero’s role.
Shraddha will hear another narration of the final script and then take a call. But since the changes might not meet with her sky-high expectations, another source tells us that she’s contemplating walking out of the project.

Deepika Padukone to star in a big budget superhero film next?
Deepika Padukone is basking in the glory of her last release ‘Padmaavat’. The Diva received much love from fans and critics alike for her portrayal of Rani Padmavati in the period drama. Deepika was to start work on her next with Vishal Bhardwaj. The film that also starred Irrfan Khan was delayed due to Khan’s health condition.
Later the actress too was on a hiatus, recovering from the chronic back and neck pain she suffered while filming a song in ‘Padmaavat’. Rumours of her impending wedding to beau Ranveer Singh is also on an all time high. But it is now being reported by a leading magazine that the actress has finally signed her next.
As reported by Filmfare, “After going through several scripts, Deepika has finally locked one and this is a massive superhero film. Deepika will have various action scenes which fans haven’t seen her doing before. The untitled film will be produced by Fox Star and she’s quite excited about it already.” (Also Read: Deepika Padukone and sister Anisha’s GOOFY avatar will leave you in splits!)
Though Deepika and the team have as yet not made any formal announcement, but apparently she has given her nod to the big budget project. The movie is said to be on the lines of Gal Gadot’s ‘Wonder Woman’.
We can truly imagine Deepika in the garb of a superhero.
