Now we hear that this actor-director duo has decided to collaborate once again after ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ and the project will be a thriller set in Uttar Pradesh.
Talking about the film, Shree Narayan Singh told Mumbai Mirror, “The story is based in the heartland of India. Once the script is ready we will decide when to go on the floors but it will be in 2019 as Shahid has to fulfill all prior commitments as well before starting my film. I can promise that it’s a story no one has attempted before and we are planning it in great detail. Shahid and I are friends now and share a certain comfort level and we luckily found the perfect script.” The leading lady for the untitled movie is yet to be decided.
