Batti Gul Meter Chalu Movie

Shahid Kapoor’s leading lady in Batti Gul Meter Chalu has been a topic of discussion for quite a few weeks now. Initially, it was reported that Shraddha Kapoor was doing the film. Then came reports that Yami Gautam was the heroine with Shraddha playing the second lead. None of these reports were entirely true, however.

Putting an end to all the rumours, the makers have now officially announced the lead pair of the film. The film will reunite the Haider pair of Shahid and Shraddha, whereas Yami will feature as the second lead. Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter account to confirm the news. Below, check out his tweet:

Talking about Shraddha’s association with the film, co-producer Prernaa Arora of KriArj Entertainment, had earlier said, “Shraddha was keen to come on-board because it is a career-defining role. The film is a love story at its core set in a small town. It is also socially relevant as it highlights the issues of electricity shortage that the common man faces.”

Batti Gul Meter Chalu will be directed by Toilet: Ek Prem Katha director Shree Narayan Singh. A joint production venture between T-Series and KriArj Entertainment, the social drama will hit the screens on August 31 this year.
