Last week we heard reports of director Ali Abbas Zafar, who is best known for directing Salman Khan in ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ and ‘Sultan’, collaborating with Shahid Kapoor for a thriller that would be extensively shot in Abu Dhabi. And now, we hear that the director is already in talks to finalize the leading lady opposite the ‘Kabir Singh’ star and it’s none other than Bhumi Pednekar!
Buzz in the industry suggests that Bhumi has been approached to play the lead in the thriller, which is reportedly a remake of a Hollywood blockbuster; making it the first time we’d see her pairing up with Shahid. Well, we’re quite excited about this interesting new Jodi on-screen.
While Shahid, who has the sports drama ‘Jersey’ lined up for a release, is currently wrapping up his first web series ‘Fake’, Bhumi has ‘Badhaai Do’, ‘Mr. Lele’ and ‘Raksha Bandhan’ in her kitty.
