Bollywood superstar Shahid Kapoor is in a happy space, be it his personal life or professional life. The actor who garnered accolades for his performance in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama ‘Padmaavat’, will next be seen in Shree Narayan Singh’s ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ that is based on a social issue. Other than this film, Singh and Shahid are all set to collaborate for a biopic next.

Singh has planned to make a biopic on Dr Verghese Kurien, who is also known to be the Father of the White Revolution in India. During the filming of ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’, he had narrated the idea to Shahid and the two have decided to work together for the movie that is based on a hard hitting subject.

Singh said, “The next film with Shahid is not based on any social issue. It is a completely different kind of a film. It is in the hard hitting space. No one has seen Shahid in that space before. Work on the script is on.”

Ekta Kapoor of Balaji Motion Pictures has acquired the film rights of the visionary’s autobiography – I Too Had A Dream, which chronicles the life of Dr. Kurien, who dedicated his life to shaping the milk industry of India. He was also known as the ‘Man behind Amul’.

The script is being developed out of Kurien’s autobiography. Singh further added that as it is a period film that is starting from 1947 he aims at making the story as entertaining and appealing for the audience therefore plans to do proper research before going on floors. He plans to be fully prepared right from the script stage, location  to the VFX. He wants the audience to love it.

On the other hand, ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ that also features Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam, will hit the screens on 21st September 2018.
