Padmavati actor Shahid Kapoor is all set to star in  Batti Gul Meter Chaalu directed by Shree Narayan Singh. If the latest reports are to be believed by DNA, Haider co stars Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor are all set to recreate their amazing on screen chemistry once again. Earlier speculations were rife that Katrina Kaif might be playing the lead actor opposite Shahid but she could not sign the film due to unavailability of dates, which made the Baaghi actress bag the role.

“The makers recently got in touch with Shraddha. She has been briefed about the role. The producers were looking for an A-list heroine to be cast opposite Shahid, who plays a lawyer in the film. However, it will require some prep. Katrina couldn’t sign the film because she didn’t have the time to do so,” a source told the leading daily. The film Batti Gul Meter Chaalu will be a satirical drama in which Shahid will be playing the role of a common man and will take on a fight against the electricity board to fight corruption.

Meanwhile, Shahid Kapoor starrer Padmavati has been granted a U/A certificate by the censor board after suggesting five modifications including changes in the main title of the film. The film will hit the big screen in 2018. If Shraddha Kapoor bags the role, she will have a strong chance to make her big comeback in the Bollywood industry as her past releases in 2017 like Haseena Parkar, Ok Jaanu and Rock On 2 failed to make any impact on the box office.
