Though they haven’t yet started shooting for the movie, the makers of the social drama, tentatively titled Roshni, are releasing the teaser of the movie on October 19. In a move that would certainly be a pleasant surprise for all Shahid Kapoor fans, the teaser will land tomorrow and we can’t wait to see what it will try to convey. The movie is directed by Shree Narayan Singh, who previously directed Akshay Kumar’s 2017 blockbuster Toilet Ek Prem Katha.
The director himself confirmed the news when he spoke to Mid-Day. He had said, “The festival of lights is the right occasion for us to throw light on a subject that needs to be discussed. We look forward to making a film that is both commercially entertaining and encourages a conversation on the subject.” As Ajay Devgn’s Golmaal Again and Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar battle it out at the box office, Shahid Kapoor hopefully gets enough space to divert attention to his movie.
Roshni, if you are not aware, is about the corruption happening in electricity board where electricity is siphoned by the corrupt and poor innocent consumers have to bear the brunt by getting huge electricity bills. Shahid Kapoor plays a lawyer who gets involved in a legal battle to fight against these malpractices. There were reports that the makers are looking to rope in Katrina Kaif and Abhishek Bachchan in the movie to play important characters, though the final casting is yet to be confirmed.
A source close to the creative team told the paper, “Shree Narayan Singh gave Katrina a narration before she left for Los Angeles. She loved the story and is keen to collaborate with him. She has already asked her team to work out further details. The creative team loved the fresh pairing of Shahid and Katrina. She is in Los Angeles to apparently chart out her debut in Hollywood. Once she returns, she is expected to sign on the dotted line after finalising the dates and remuneration.” However, the makers haven’t yet given a confirmation on this.
