Actress Shraddha Kapoor, who will be seen in the biopic of Indian badminton champion Saina Nehwal.
She has decided to squeeze in director Shree Narayan Singh’s ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’, before starting on the Nehwal biopic.
The actress will start ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ in April and will begin shooting for the Nehwal biopic from September 1 with director Amole Gupte.
Shraddha loved her role so much that she not only agreed to postpone working on the Nehwal biopic but also agreed to take a pay cut for the chance to work with the director Shree Narayan.
Source says, “When Shraddha was offered Batti Gul Meter Chalu, she immediately fell in love with her character and the film. But the dates were clashing with the Nehwal biopic. A solution was worked out between producers Prernaa Arora of Batti Gul Meter Chalu and producer Bhushan Kumar, who’s co-producing both Batti Gul Meter Chalu and the Saina Nehwal biopic.”
“Bhushan agreed to postpone his film by a few months to accommodate Prernaa’s film into Shraddha’s schedule,” source added.
Meanwhile, Shraddha is excited about getting to play a small town girl opposite Shahid Kapoor in ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’.–CINEWS
