Though his last outing 'Shandaar' was a debacle at the box office, Shahid Kapoor is quite excited about his upcoming film 'Udta Punjab' which promises to be a dark and gritty thriller, something with he has never explored before!
Recently in an interview to DNA Shahid said that 'Udta Punjab' is a special film for him. He was quoted as saying, "Udta Punjab on paper might seem dark and edgy, but once you see that film, I can assure you it’s the kind of role any actor would die for. When I heard the script, I instantly agreed. There were three other characters and we were waiting for them to be cast. Nobody was saying yes to the film and we could not start. It took some time for the film to get cast.”
He said that after sitting through the narration, the first thing he did was recommend Bebo’s name to director Abhishek Chaubey. Talking further about her he added, "I feel she’s the best thing about the film because I was the one to give her name and I think highly of her as an actor.”
Buzz is that the makers of 'Udta Punjab' are eying for an early 2016 release. Meanwhile Shahid is currently shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj's 'Rangoon'.
