Siddharth Malhotra Is Set To Star In Shotgun Shaadi, A Story, produced by Ekta Kapoor.
The movie depicts the practice of groom abduction that is rife in UP. A source spoke to a leading daily about the film, “It’s a small town love story with edgy characters. As soon as Ekta heard it she immediately reached out to Sidharth. She believes it’s a great role and a perfect film for them to come together. The film is expected to roll in a couple of months. The makers will begin the shooting soon and zero in on a leading lady.”
“Sid plays a thug who abducts potential grooms and gets them forcefully married. He has started taking classes to master the Bihari diction,” they added.
There were rumors that Shraddha Kapoor would star opposite Siddharth but she clarified in a statement, saying, “There are a couple of films that my name is being associated with when I haven’t even been approached. The only films I am working on are ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu‘, ‘Stree‘ and ‘Saaho’. My producers will announce if and when I sign another project. Till then please don’t believe in any speculations.”
Meanwhile, Siddharth is also set to work on Kaargil: Sher Shah, a biopic on the life of Kaargil war hero Captain Vikram Batra.
