Mumbai: Post becoming a father, Shahid Kapoor seems to be back in track and a hot favourite among all directors.
He was last directed in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’, and now he’s shooting with ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ director Shree Narayan Singh for ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’.
Shahid was also supposed to work with Imtiaz Ali on a project, but while that has been reportedly put on the backburner, Shahid has nothing to worry about since he has now been approached by ‘Chef’ and ‘Airlift’ director Raja Krishna Menon.
A source close to the development told Mumbai Mirror, "Shahid and Raja have been planning to work together for a while now. They had met after the release of ‘Udta Punjab’ back in June 2016 and had kept in touch, looking for a project to collaborate on. Both agreed on a script that Raja had been working on."
Confirming the same, director Raja Krishna Menon told the daily, "Yes Shahid and I are very keen to do our next film together. We have been working on an idea that we are both excited about and it will be a film based on a true story."...
