Shahid Kapoor’s much talked about film Padmaavat released last week after lots of controversies. Amid violent protests by right-wing Hindu groups, who speculated that the film distorted historical facts, the film was cleared for release by the CBFC after several modifications were made to it.

As we know that Kapoor maintains his popularity despite a fluctuating career trajectory. Initially recognised for portraying romantic roles, Kapoor has since taken on parts in action films and thrillers. He is the recipient of several awards, including three Filmfare Awards. Now Shahid surprised his fans by visiting Chandan theatre here on Sunday.

The actor paid a visit to find out audience reaction to Padmaavat and during an interaction, he was asked about his next film Batti Gul Meter Chalu to which he replied: “Shree Narayan Singh in Toilet Ek Prem Katha talked about issues women faced with open defecation. Now he has chosen the electricity issue which will make the film very relatable to the common man.”

“Now, that Padmaavat has released and is out of my system, I can focus on other projects,” he said. The actor also revealed that the Batti Gul Meter Chalu team will begin shooting soon. He has also committed to reuniting with Imtiaz Ali in a yet-untitled project.[88]
