Shahid Kapoor

Shahid Kapoor is apparently to be seen in Shree Narayan Singh’s next and BizAsiaLive.com reported recently that the story would be revolving around electricity theft. It’s now being said that the actor would be playing a lawyer in the film which has been tentatively titled ‘Roshni’.

According to Mid-Day, the story is about a lawyer who raises his voice against electricity theft. A source said, “It’s quite common for people to receive astronomical electricity bills and they don’t know how to verify it. The story revolves around the problem of electricity, that’s why it’s tentatively called Roshni [light]. Shahid plays a lawyer, who raises his voice against this issue. What starts off as a single citizen’s fight soon grows, as the country rallies behind him”.

The makers are also looking to cast a big heroine as the source added, “There’s also a parallel love story. The makers are considering a few top actresses for the role opposite him. The leading lady has a strong role too — she is his friend, who stands beside him in his trying times”.

Singh’s film ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ (2017) proved to be one of this year’s biggest successes, starring Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar.
