Shahid Kapoor To Team Up With Nikkhil Advani For An Action Thriller!
Nikkhil Advani and Shahid Kapoor have discussed the action-thriller project through a virtual meet. Reportedly, the actor is impressed with the script while the makers will make an official announcement soon.
After a series of doomed films, Shahid Kapoor made a great comeback with the 2019 film, Kabir Singh. Though the film was in controversy for several reasons, Shahid’s lead performance was hailed by critics as well as fans. Now, the actor is quite invested in some ‘good projects’ including Raj & DK’s web show and a sports drama ‘Jersey’. Also, if recent reports are to be believed, Shahid will also be seen in an action thriller backed by producer-director Nikkhil Advani.
Nikkhil Advani has been planning an action thriller for more than a year now. Reportedly, he wanted to cast an A-list Bollywood star from the younger generation. And as per the recent reports, Nikkhil has approached Shahid Kapoor for the same. A source close to the film revealed that Nikkhil and Shahid discussed the project via a “virtual meet”. The actor has liked the script while the makers are planning out further formalities before locking the project.
“Shahid has liked the whole idea and the script and now, the team is trying to work out the modalities, before finalizing it,” the source revealed. Well, this is not the first time Nikkhil has approached Shahid for a film project. Nikkhil, who is co-producing the film Bell Bottom had discussed the project with Shahid after Hrithik Roshan backed out.
Due to date issues, Shahid was not able to sign Bell Bottom which ultimately went to Akshay Kumar. However, if recent reports are true, Shahid and Nikkhil will be collaborating for the first time. Though nothing more about this action thriller is revealed, it would be interesting to see Shahid under the skin of an action hero.
As of now, Shahid is awaiting the release of his next titled ‘Jersey’. Also, the actor will be making his digital debut with Raj & DK’s web show which will be a quirky-cum-action thriller.
