After 'Dedh Ishqiya' Abhishek Chaubey's next is a gritty thriller titled 'Udta Punjab'. The film stars the 'Shaandaar' actors Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh.
Recently Kareena and Diljit were caught in a frame on the film's set. The picture shows Bebo kick-starting a motor-cycle while he looks on. 'Udta Punjab' is based on drug mafia in Punjab. Initial reports suggest that Alia plays a Bihari labourer while Kareena essays the role of a doctor.
However we hear that both Shahid and Alia don't have any scenes with Kareena. In one of the interviews Alia had mentioned this flick to be the most emotionally-draining film of her career.
Directed by Abhishek Chaubey and produced by Phantom Films, the rights of the movie have been acquired by Balaji Motion Pictures. 'Udta Punjab' is slated to release next year.
