Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor, renowned for his versatile acting prowess, is reportedly in talks for a monumental project that delves into the life of the legendary Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The historical film, directed by Amit Rai of “OMG 2” fame, is said to be in the early stages of development, with discussions on casting already underway.
Amit Rai, known for his penchant for thought-provoking subjects, has reportedly captured the attention of producers with his compelling narrative and visionary approach to storytelling. While no official confirmation has been made, sources suggest that Shahid Kapoor is being considered for a pivotal role in the film. Allegedly, Shahid has expressed keen interest in the project and is eager to be a part of this historical saga.
However, official announcements are expected to be made once a major studio is onboard as a collaborator. Producers are reportedly actively engaged in discussions with potential studios and backers to bring this ambitious historical venture to fruition.
The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj biopic is anticipated to be one of the largest and most expensive productions in Indian cinema, underscoring the significance and grandeur of the historical narrative it aims to portray. Shahid Kapoor’s reputation as a versatile and accomplished actor has positioned him as a prime choice for the film.
As the actor awaits the release of his upcoming film, “Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya,” in which he stars alongside Kriti Sanon, the prospect of him venturing into historical territory with the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj biopic adds an exciting dimension to his diverse cinematic journey. In “Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya,” Shahid Kapoor portrays Aryan in a unique love story between a human and a robot, with Kriti Sanon essaying the role of the robot, Sifra.
