Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor is reportedly in talks with filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali for a new project. According to latest reports, the two have been discussing the idea of collaborating on a “BIG COMMERCIAL entertainer” for the last two months. The film is expected to be produced by Bhansali and will be an “out and out masala entertainer.”
Shahid Kapoor And Sanjay Leela Bhansali To Work Together Again?
Shahid Kapoor and Sanjay Leela Bhansali previously worked together on the 2018 film Padmaavat, which was a commercial success. The two have reportedly been in touch since then, and are now discussing the possibility of working together again.
“Shahid and SLB have mutual respect for each other and are discussing the idea of collaborating on a special project. It’s an out and out masala entertainer, and the script has been completely developed by Bhansali’s team of writers. The filmmaker has been actively working towards casting the film over the last few months, and is having detailed conversations with Shahid on the permutation and combinations with regards to film,” revealed a source close to the development to Pinkvilla.
Script Developed But Director Not Finalised Yet
According to sources close to the development, Bhansali has been actively working towards casting the film over the last few months, and is having detailed conversations with Shahid on the permutation and combinations with regards to film. The script has been completely developed by Bhansali’s team of writers.
The filmmaker is yet to finalize a director for the project, but wishes to get a top director on board. The film is expected to go on floors in the first half of next year once Shahid wraps up shooting for Koi Shaq. “It’s in very early stages of discussion at the moment and there is no director associated to the script. Once Shahid agrees in principle on the script, Bhansali will scout for a director, as he wishes to get a top director on board the project. It’s a very commercial script, on the lines of two other films produced by SLB, Rowdy Rathore and Gabbar Is Back. SLB and team are hopeful on Shahid to come on board the film,” the source concludes.
