Dhaka, 25 Nov, Abnews: Shahid Kapoor who has been busy with Padmavati will soon begin shooting for Shree Narayan Singh's Batti Gul Meter Chalu. While the female lady is yet to be locked, reports of Katrina Kaif being approached for it has been making the maximum noise.
However, now the buzz is that the Shahid Kapoor is not very interested in teaming up with Katrina on screen. He apparently was not happy with the filmmakers on the same and he even expressed the same to them.
However, when we contacted director Shree Narayan Singh for the same, he refuted the report saying, "This is absolutely untrue I do not even understand where this is coming from why would Shahid be unhappy? Firstly Shahid does not interfere with the creatives and casting, secondly, We are yet to take a call on this. Myself and Prerna - producer will take a joint call very soon. Regards to Katrina or any actor, it is the director’s call and Shahid equally supports this. To sum it up Shahid has no reservations at all if Katrina is on board, in fact, he will be glad to have her on the film. It's better not to speculate things like this."
Shahid will play the role of a lawyer in the movie. The movie delves into the issue of highly priced electricity bills which has become a common problem for the citizens.
The film's teaser was released on Diwali. "The subject of the film is very relevant to our times. Diwali makes it just the right occasion for us to shed light on a subject that needs to be discussed. We look forward to making a film that is both commercially entertaining and encourages a social conversation," said Shree Narayan Singh.
Singh also added, "I'm happy to collaborate with Prernaa and Arjun of KriArj Entertainment the presenters of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. As a filmmaker, it’s a pleasure working with a dream team of producers, Bhushan Kumar of T-Series, who also always puts the film first and understands everything that goes into making a memorable movie. Together we hope to make another memorable film that reaches a wide spectrum of audiences across the country. I also look forward to working with Shahid Kapoor. Someone with his talent will do complete justice to the role." – Pinkvilla
