Shahid Kapoor has been on a roll on since his film 'Haider' bagged him a National award. Ever since he has been flooded with offers and he will be soon seen in 'Shaandaar' and 'Udta Punjab', both the movies which will see him in stark opposite roles.
While 'Shaandaar' is a romantic comedy ,'Udta Punjab' is a drama directed by Abhishek Chaubey. Shahid spoke at an event recently where he shared that 'Udta Punjab' was in the making for almost a year and no one wanted to sign it because of the dark content. The movie will show a modern take on drug usage and owing to this subject various people shied away from associating with it.
The film deals with the rampant drug usage and peddling in the state of Punjab. Shahid will play a drug dealer, while Alia Bhatt plays a drug addict and his girlfriend. Also starring Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljeet Dosanjh 'Udta Punjab' releases next year.
