Filming has begun for the film BATTI GUL METER CHALU starring Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor, Shraddha has been filming scenes in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand and was seen riding a scooter which has taken by a fan and posted on twitter and Instagram. The film centres around social issues of escalating electricity bill which is a cause of concern for many households in the country, Shree Narayan Singh is at the helm of this film after wrapping up TOILET - EK PREM KATHA, this seems to be another social issue that the editor-turned-director seems to be touching upon.
Shahid Kapoor mentioned to Mumbai Mirror in a recent interview of challenges while playing a small town lawyer, “It sounds cool but it’s very difficult to pull off. My character is a small-town lawyer, a regular bloke who fights for an issue with which so many people in our country are grappling — power cuts and outrageously high electricity bills,”
Several images have emerged of the cast on the with both leading actors seen on a scooter zipping around the towns of Uttarakhand, Yami Gautam also is part of the cast as she is supposed to play a main role in the film.
BATTI GUL METER CHALU is meant to be a comedy drama so it will be nice to see Shahid Kapoor take on a role much different from his last two film Padmaavat and Rangoon which were historic.
The film releases on August 31 2018.
