As per Bollywood Hungama, a source close to the development revealed, “Not much is known about the film yet but it is an action thriller that Nikkhil has been planning for over a year now. He wanted an A-list actor from the younger generation to play the lead. He approached Shahid for the same and they have discussed the whole project virtually over a meeting since Shahid is not in town. Shahid has liked the whole idea and the script and now, the team is trying to work out the modalities, before finalising it.”
The report further claimed that Shahid Kapoor was previously offered a film Bell Bottom by Nikkhil Advani. The film was originally supposed to be helmed by the filmmaker along with Ranjit Tiwari before Akshay Kumar and Jackky Bhagnani-co-produced the film.
