Shahid Kapoor to now shoot Anees Bazmee’s action-comedy

Following his maiden release Farzi on a digital platform, Shahid Kapoor wrapped his next with Kriti Sanon in April 2023. The actor will now move on to comedy entertainer, in which he is collaborating with Anees Bazmee. As per a report in Mid-Day, a source told the publication, “When he met Shahid last year, the actor loved the concept and said yes in principle. Anees dedicated the next six months to develop the comedy. Contrary to reports, it is not a remake of a south film, but an original script. Shahid is excited about the project as it not only sees him attempt a light-hearted fare after the intense Jersey [2022], Farzi and the upcoming Bloody Daddy, but will also see him in a double role. True to his style, the director has designed it as a massy entertainer.” The casting for the lead actress is underway. Meanwhile, Shahid has an array of line-up including Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bloody Daddy, Siddharth Roy Kapur’s next with Rosshan Andrrews, and the next with Kriti Sanon.
