Days after the release of his film Jab We Met , Shahid Kapur has been signed for another romantic comedy. This time his heroine is not Kareena Kapoor .
Shahid is certainly moving to the higher league in Bollywood. His cute look and dimpled smile still make him look like a boy, but Shahid is getting lead roles opposite actresses that look mature than him.
First, it was director Aziz Mirza to cast him in his film ‘Kismat Connection’ opposite Vidya Balan . The film has already been shot and its post-production work is underway.
Now, it is Rajkumar Santoshi who has signed Shahid to play the leading man opposite gorgeous Katrina Kaif in his next movie.
Santoshi, known mostly for making films with socio-political themes, is now eager to explore a genre he hasn’t tried so far – romantic comedy.
The obvious question that arises is – Is the film about a young guy in love with a mature woman?
Santoshi says he cannot divulge any details about the story. However, he does state that he found Shahid and Katrina perfectly suited for the roles.
Both the actors have given their nod to the project but their dates are yet to be sorted out.
This would be the first time Shahid and Katrina will work together. It remains to be seen how they get along with each other on the sets because Shahid’s ‘cold war’ with Katrina’s beau Salman Khan has been going for a long time.
