After completing the Hindi remake of the Telugu film, ‘Jersey’, Shahid Kapoor will start shooting for Shashank Khaitan’s action-drama, which is tentatively titled, ‘Yodha’. However, did you recognize that it had been Ranbir Kapoor and not Shahid Kapoor who was the first choice for the film? Yes, you read that right! according to a report in Filmfare, Shashank Khaitan had first approached Ranbir Kapoor for the film. They thought that the talented actor would be perfect for the role. However, the actor turned down the offer for reasons best known to him, and therefore the script was then taken to Shahid Kapoor. Shahid was reportedly quite excited when he heard the script.
Reports also are rife that Shahid is going to be paired opposite Disha Patani. Shashank reportedly thinks Disha is ideal for the role. according to a report during a news portal, though the film is an actioner centered on the protagonist, the feminine lead has a stimulating arc and is crucial to the narrative. Shashank, who is giving finishing touches to the script, recently sat down for narration with Disha. The actor has expressed her interest in the coming board but has yet to check in the line. If Disha is on board, this may be the first time that Shahid and Disha are going to be seen together on screen.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Ranbir will next be seen in Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Brahmastra’ co-starring ladylove Alia Bhatt. He also has Luv Ranjan’s next co-starring Shraddha Kapoor.
Disha, on the opposite hand, has films like, ‘Radhe: Your much loved Bhai’ co-starring Salman Khan and ‘Ek Villain 2’ which also stars John Abraham, Aditya Roy Kapur, and Tara Sutaria in lead roles.
