A source told Mid-Day, “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.”
Kapoor has just wrapped an untitled romantic drama opposite Kriti Sanon and will be seen in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bloody Daddy.
