Batti Gul Meter Chalu: Shahid Kapoor heads to court for his next

Shahid Kapoor might have missed the December 1 date with the box office this year after ‘Padmavati‘ got delayed indefinitely. But Shahid just like his ‘Padmavati’ co-star Ranveer Singh has moved on to his next film, ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’. We hear that Shahid Kapoor will be playing the role of a lawyer and will be seen wearing the black robe in the film. As Shahid has started his prep for the film the director spoke with Mumbai Mirror and revealed, “The film will take off on a cool note but will become more intense post-interval with heavyweight performances and Shahid having several confrontation scenes,”

This is a first for Shahid as he has never played the role of a lawyer. The filmmaker reveals the premise of the film that is based in Delhi. “The film touches upon two aspects — first, the significance of electricity and life without it and second, what happens to a common man when he is faced with humungous bills”

The leading lady opposite Shahid is yet not finalised and the hunt for the face is still on. Will it be an established actress or will the film see a new face altogether? That time will tell. The film is slated for a 3rd August 2018 release and is ready to go on floors from 19th January 2018. The film is produced by KriRaj Films along with T-Series.
