If there was an actress who could give Alia Bhatt a run for her money, it had to be Shraddha Kapoor. But she made a few bad choices and her career went downhill. Now she is all set to get back in the race with Batti GuI Meter Chalu and Saina. The first one is based on the issue of electricity theft in Indian villages while the latter is the biopic of the badminton champion – Saina Nehwal.
Batti Gul Meter Chalu stars Shahid Kapoor in the lead role and this is the second time that Shraddha and he are working together. They previously collaborated on Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider. The duo is expected to kick off the promotions soon and they will be joined by co-star, Yami Gautam. The upcoming Hindi movie will release on September 21, 2018.
With regard to the film on Saina Nehwal’s life, that has been pushed for months. It was supposed to go on floors at the beginning of this year but now it is revealed that Kapoor wants to hone her badminton skills even more. The movie is helmed by Amol Gupte and there were reports that he wasn’t happy with Shraddha’s performance and wanted to replace her. While Deepika Padukone was the ideal choice for this role, she was busy with other projects and the makers zeroed in on Shraddha Kapoor. Since she is putting in extra efforts for the movie, we are pretty sure Kapoor will win the hearts of her fans and the critics.
