Meanwhile, Shahid Kapoor is a relieved man after his much-troubled movie Padmaavat has hit the screens. That chapter of his life wrapped up, Shahid will now start working on his film Batti Gul Meter Chalu. The actor reveals that the film is set in Uttarakhand, and is based on a relatable subject.
He says, “We will go on the floors in the next 10 days, and the film is based in Uttarakhand. They have a certain accent and dialect I’m working on. It’s a story about a small place, and I’m playing a simple lawyer in the film.”
He smiles, “Shree Narayan Singh, who earlier made Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, will be directing this film. Toilet was also about a social issue, and this time he chose an issue on electricity. So it’s a relatable subject. I’m excited to start with this new project. Now that Padmaavat has released, it’s out of my system. I can move on. I was stuck on Padmaavat all this while.”
