Mumbai, Sep 27 : Actor Shahid Kapoor, who is busy promoting “Padmavati”, will next work under the direction of Shree Narayan Singh of “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha” fame.

The yet untitled project is being produced by T-Series and KriArj Entertainment.

Happy to work with Shahid, Singh said in a statement: “With films like ‘Kaminey’, ‘Jab We Met’, ‘Haider’ and ‘Udta Punjab’, Shahid Kapoor has definitely proved his mettle as an actor. Having said that, his star presence is undeniable and I look forward to working with him.”

According to a source in the know of developments, Prernaa Arora of KriArj Entertainment loved the script, which she shared with Shahid, who immediately came on board to do the film. It’s a very strong script, which depicts the entire gamut of emotions and has a realistic and earthy feel to it, the source added.

Arora said: “We really enjoyed making ‘Toilet…’ together earlier and know that Shree Narayan Singh’s sensibilities as a filmmaker has given us the confidence that we have another winner on our hands.”

She is confident that Shahid, whom she describes as “one of the industry’s finest actors”, would “completely do justice to the role”.

“We are so excited to be collaborating with him on this one as the role is tailor-made for someone with his talent and calibre. Together, Shahid & Shree, will form a brilliant combo, a winner for us, for sure,” Arora said.

Bhushan Kumar of T-Series also said: “Shree Narayan Singh is a director who balances strong message driven film with entertainment by making it commercially viable. And Shahid Kapoor is an actor par excellence. He is always the best version of himself when he enthralls us with the various roles he chooses to play on screen.” (ians)

Actor Ishaan Khatter, who is close to his brother and actor Shahid Kapoor, says he discusses his professional choices with him.

“In the past I have shared with my brother and mother about the work that I am going to do. I think if you are close to somebody, you tend to share something that is so important to you and films are a very important part of my life,” Ishaan said in a statement to IANS.

“And because he is part of the same industry, it is much easier for him to understand. He doesn’t demand that I share everything with him or my mother. But I like to share things with my mother and brother,” he added.

Ishaan made his film debut with Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi’s “Beyond The Clouds”, but “Dhadak” marked Ishaan’s entry in Bollywood. An adaptation of Marathi hit “Sairat”, “Dhadak” marked the much-awaited Bollywood foray of Janhvi Kapoor. It will find its way on the Indian small screen on Sunday on Zee Cinema.

On his love for dance, he said: “Actually my mother was the first dancer in our family and she is the most accomplished of us all as a dancer. I don’t think I was even conscious that my brother was a dancer when I started dancing, I was very young.”

“I definitely share dance with him. We are very passionate about dance and he is the more experienced dancer. He has been a mentor and he has taught me dance a lot of different techniques. So he definitely is my teacher and mentor,” he added.
