“There are three films which I have signed. One is with Maneesh Sharma which I start in August and finish by November. There's a film with Prabhu Deva, which will start at some point next year around February because he is doing another film right now. And there is a film with Bejoy Nambiar which will also start next year,” said Shahid Kapoor to a daily.
The actor revealed that he was going through few more scripts and might end up signing few more movies this year.
“There are various other films that I have been considering because I have decided to do more work because I have been told that I work very little and I feel it myself too. I have not kind of had anything in the last four months,” he said.
Previously it was reported that the actor had signed Raj Kumar Santoshi’s next film ‘Phata Poster Nikla Hero'. The actor admitted that he had met up with the filmmaker but hadn’t signed on the dotted line yet.
“I and Raj (Rajkumar Santoshi) have met, but I haven't signed the film as of now,” he said.
Previously though talking to PTI, producer Ramesh Taurani had said that Shahid Kapoor had been finalized for the movie.
“We have finalized Shahid Kapoor as the hero for the film to be directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. We felt he fit the bill for this role. It was for about six months when we were discussing this project with him. The film is tentatively titled 'Phata Poster Nikla Hero',” said Ramesh Taurani.
Talking about the movie’s story he said, “This film is a full fledged masala entertainer with elements of romance and action. It is an original story and not a remake.”
The producer also said that he would go for fresh pairing for the movie.
“All I can is we will go with a fresh pairing. I think in about a week or so we should be able to finalize things,” he concluded.
