A source told Instant Bollywood, “Not much is known about the project yet but it is an action thriller that Nikkhil has been planning for over a year now. He wanted an A-list actor from the younger generation to play the lead. He approached Shahid for the same and they have discussed the whole project virtually over a meeting since Shahid is not in town. Shahid has liked the whole idea and the script and now, the team is trying to work out the modalities, before finalizing it.”
A report by Bollywood Hungama suggests that Nikkhil had offered ‘Bell Bottom’ to Shahid as well. Shahid had liked the script but due to unavailability of dates he had to pass up on the offer. The role was later offered to Akshay Kumar.
