It’s reported that the actor’s agency has asked the makers of Milan Talkies to cast an A-list actress opposite him. It’s even said that Shahid has also made it clear through his agency that until a heroine of his choice is being cast, he might not be interested in doing the film.
“Shraddha Kapoor was in the race to bag the top spot. However after her name dropped out, rumours are that Shahid’s representatives have now told the makers that without an A-list actress on board, the actor won’t do the film,” a source is quoted as saying by a tabloid.
Milan Talkies will be directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia and produced by Ekta Kapoor. Earlier, the makers had approached Priyanka Chopra for the lead role opposite Shahid, but they later zeroed down on Shraddha Kapoor. But since Shraddha actress is doing another film with Shahid, and apparently had date issues, she too opted out of the film.
Director Tigmanshu Dhulia had then said that they are looking for a fresh face to play the lead in the movie. However, Shahid may have something else on mind.
Sources claim that after the debacle of his latest film, Shahid Kapoor is not willing to take chances, and wants his upcoming movies to do well. He is overwhelmed with the kind of response the trailer of his mass-entertainer R… Rajkumar with Sonakshi Sinha has got. Obviously, Shahid is hopeful about the movie’s prospects at the BO.
