Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor is in talks for atleast four films. After Jersey and the Raj and DK web series, Shahid has now been roped in for an ambitious action project. The actor thriller will be produced by producer director Nikkhil Advani who has been planning for over a year now.
A source revealed, “Not much is known about the film yet but it is an action thriller that Nikkhil has been planning for over a year now. He wanted an A-list actor from the younger generation to play the lead. He approached Shahid for the same and they have discussed the whole project virtually over a meeting, since Shahid is not in town. Shahid has liked the whole idea and the script and now, the team is trying to work out the modalities, before finalising it.”
This is not the first time when Nikkhil approached Shahid for a film. Akshay Kumar starrer Bell Bottom was a film that Ranjit Tiwari was going to make with Nikkhil. After Hrithik Roshan denied to do the part, Nikkhil and Ranjit offered the film to Shahid who liked the script but did not have dates at that time. At present, Nikkhil and Jaccky Bhagnani are co producing the movie with Akshay Kumar.
Shahid will soon make his digital debut with the family man creators Raj and DK alongside Raashi Khanna.
Recently, Kapoor talked about his OTT debut in an Instagram live session with his fans. He said, “I’m very nervous about making my digital debut because I really feel that actors who might have been liked and loved on the big screen, might or might not be appreciated on a digital platform.”
He further added, “You can’t just be okay if people like you for a couple of hours. They need to be interested in your character, connect with you and you need to hold their attention for 9-10 episodes. I don’t think I’m experienced in that space. So it would be interesting to see how people react to me on that platform.”
Apart from this, Kapoor will also be seen in Jersey which is the remake of South movie with the same name.
