After getting rave reviews for his social drama ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’, director Shree Narayan Singh has roped in Shahid Kapoor for his next ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu.’ After much speculation over the leading lady in the film opposite Shahid, Shraddha Kapoor was reportedly roped in.
Now, according to latest developments, Yami Gautam has also been brought on board for the film. Confirming the same, Yami took to her twitter handle and wrote, “Super happy to commence this special journey with @kriarj on ‘ Batti Gul Meter Chalu ‘ :) Really excited for this one #Prerna #Shree @shahidkapoor @ShraddhaKapoor"
Shahid too welcomed her by replying, "Great to have you on board."
Although Shraddha and Shahid have worked together in ‘Haider’ before, it would be for the first time that Yami and Shahid will be seen sharing screen space. The film is all set to go on floors on January 19 and is slated to release on August 31, 2018.
