Shahid Kapoor has now opened up about the movie and feels that he can concentrate on other projects. The actor gave a good surprise to the fans when he visited a theater on Sunday.

Shahid Kapoor will next be seen in Batti Gul Meter Chalu and the actor is very excited about the project. When asked about his upcoming film Batti Gul Meter Chalu, he said, “Shree Narayan Singh in ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’ talked about issues women faced with open defecation. Now he has chosen the electricity issue which will make the film very relatable to the common man.”

The actor also revealed that the Batti Gul Meter Chalu will go on the floor pretty soon. He said,

“We will start shooting for it in the next 10 days. We have already started table reads for the film. The story is based in Uttarakhand so I will be using a certain accent and dialect for the film. After playing a King, I will be seen as a small city lawyer. Apart from me, Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam are part of the film,”

In the meantime, we have already told you that actress Swara Bhasker has slammed Sanjay Leela Bhansali for glorifying Sati and Jauhar in an open letter. Her open letter has created lots of controversies.

When asked about the Swara’s open letter, Shahid said,

“It has been a tough battle for us to be able to bring forth the film to the audience. It feels great to receive support from the entire industry but it feels odd that someone said something on a personal level. That’s OK though as everyone has the right to say what they want but I haven’t read it yet.”
