Shahid Kapoor first worked with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in 2018 on the iconic film Padmavat. Padmavat, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, was a box office success. It is now anticipated that they would work together again on another hit film.
Now Pinkvilla got to know from a source that Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Shahid Kapoor are in discussions for a BIG COMMERCIAL film. Shahid and Bhansali have reportedly been in communication about this idea for the past two months.
Shahid and SLB are in talks about working together on a unique project that will be a pure masala entertainer, and the script has already been written in its entirety by Bhansali’s writing staff. According to the source, the director has been actively working on casting the movie for the past few months and is currently in-depth discussions about film options with Shahid.
Bhansali will look for a director after Shahid gives the script the go-ahead, as he wants a top director on board the project. It’s a commercial script, similar to SLB’s other two films, Rowdy Rathore and Gabbar Is Back. SLB and team are hoping for Shahid to become part of the cast, the insider concludes.If all goes well, the picture will begin production in the early part of next year, when Shahid finishes filming for the Roshan Andrews-directed Koi Shaq.
Meanwhile, Shahid is still reading scripts and selecting his next project after Koi Shaq. SLB, on the other hand, is preparing for the production of Baiju Bawra, a film starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt that will begin in 2024.
