[dropcap]S[/dropcap]hahid Kapoor was spotted meeting director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra couple of days ago. The actor was apparently present in his office to discuss work and there is a possibility that duo might soon collaborate.
“Shahid is currently shooting for Kabir Singh and has not taken up any new project. He has been offered a few films but he is not in a rush to sign anything. One of the scripts which he liked is of Rakeysh and there are chances that they will work together. Shahid and Rakeysh have never worked in the past and Shahid is interested in collaborating with new directors with whom he has not worked. Shahid has always been selective about his work, so in case of this film too he will take his own time to sign the film,” a source said.
Currently, Rakeysh is busy completing post production work on his film Mere Pyaare Prime Minister. The film stars Anjali Patil and it is a story of mother and son. It addresses the issue of open defecation and sanitisation.
Rakeysh is also said to be working on a biopic of Rifleman Jaswant Singh Rawat, so there are speculations that Shahid might play Jaswant’s role in his next. Jaswant was a rifleman and soldier during 1962’s India-China war. He was given Maha Vir Chakra posthumously.
