With the first look and trailer of their forthcoming film ‘Shaandaar’ making an impact with audiences already, Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt seem to be the next upcoming on screen pair to hit the silver screens. Set to team up again in ‘Udta Punjab’, Kapoor expressed how proud he was of his co-star for wanting to take up such a deep role.
“We were trying to make ‘Udta Punjab’ for a year but no one wanted to do it as it is a dark film. I told Alia that there is a role which in my understanding is one of the finest roles for a female actor,” NDTV reported the actor stating.
Kapoor went onto explain, “Alia read the script and called me, crying, as she was moved by the film. She agreed to do the film and it is very brave on her part. There are very few actresses who like to step out of their skin and not worry about looking good and play the character. I was very proud of her that she said yes to the film. She has been making some brave choices.”
Directed by Abhishek Chaubey, “Udta Punjab’ is a film that deals with drug abuse in Punjab. Also starring in the film will be Kareena Kapoor khan and Diljit Dosanjh.
