Shahid Kapoor has been one of the most popular stars since his debut with Ishq Vishk in 2003. But he became a big name after the super success of Padmaavat and particularly Kabir singh.
After Kabir singh, Shahid Kapoor is preparing for the release of his next one which is the Hindi remake of the movie Telugu Jersey. He also signed a great webcast with the directors of The Family Man Raj & DK. Now we learn that Shasha bagged another big project and that is the Mahabharata adaptation of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.
Apparently, Shahid Kapoor will be playing the role of Karna in the upcoming biggie. While major details of the upcoming film are still not revealed, according to Bollywood Hungama, it will be based on the perspective of Karna’s character who was Surya’s spiritual son and was Duryodhan’s friend. It is not yet known whether the film will be based on the mythology plot or be the modern adaptation of it, but Rakeys will surely live his dream with it.
Apparently, it was his dream to do a project based on Karna. Exciting isn’t it?
If so, it will be another addition to the long list of upcoming mega budget Bollywood movies and sure to be a treat for movie fans in India.
Meanwhile, Shahid Kapoor recently wrapped up filming on the upcoming Jersey movie. He says it’s amazing how the crew fired for 47 days during COVID-19.
Shahid posted a photo on Instagram where his back is towards the camera and he is looking at a cricket stadium. In addition to the photo, he wrote: “This is film on # jersey…. 47 days of filming during covid. Simply incredible. I am so proud of the whole team. It is nothing less than a miracle. I want to thank everyone in the unit for coming to the set every day, putting themselves in danger and doing what we all love to do.
Shahid Kapoor added, “Telling stories that touch hearts and make a difference. Jersey is a story about a Phoenix rising from the ashes. The triumph of an indomitable spirit. If there was one time I could connect with the underlying spirit of a movie, this was it.
“As we all fight this pandemic. Let us always remember. It will also pass. Here is my best cinematic experience yet. Here in Jersey… we will win !!!! @gowtamnaidu @ mrunalofficial2016 @geethaarts @amanthegill @srivenkateswaracreations. “
