Shahid Kapoor, who is busy promoting “Padmavati”, will next work under the direction of Shree Narayan Singh with a strong social message.
Bhushan Kumar of T-Series said in a statement he is excited to work with KriArj since they have worked on films like Fanney Khan’ and ‘Kedarnath’. “Shree Narayan Singh is a director who balances strong message-driven films with entertainment by making it commercially viable. And Shahid Kapoor is an actor par excellence. He is always the best version of himself when he enthralls us with the various roles he chooses to play on screen.”
“It is an exciting film with a good story and a strong social message.” he adds.
Shahid, who has bagged multiple awards for his performance in ‘Udta Punjab’, said he wasn’t sure what kind of role he wanted to do next after Padmavati. “However, once I read the script and met Shree and Prernaa, I made up my mind. I feel privileged to be a part of this fantastic team.”
Producer Prernaa Arora said she is confident that Shahid, whom she describes as “one of the industry’s finest actors”, would “completely do justice to the role”.
“We are so excited to be collaborating with him on this one as the role is tailor-made for someone with his talent and caliber. Together, Shahid & Shree will form a brilliant combo, a winner for us, for sure,” Prernaa said in a statement.
The yet untitled project is being produced by T-Series and KriArj Entertainment.
