We had reported a few days back that Shahid Kapoor will be seen playing a lawyer in Shree Narayan Singh’s upcoming film Batti Gul Meter Chalu, which will revolve around astronomical electricity bills and while at the time, there were reports that Anushka Sharma may also star in the film, we have some fresh news on that front
Buzz has it that the makers are keen to sign up Ileana D’Cruz for a role opposite Shahid in the film. We have heard that Ileana, who had romanced Shahid in Phata Poster Nikla Hero, will also be seen playing a lawyer in the film. Slated to release on August 31 next year, Batti Gul Meter Chalu is the story of a common man’s fight against power distribution companies over the huge amount of bills generated.
Shahid will be next seen playing a Rajput king in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati.
