Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor recently wrapped up filming for his upcoming sports drama Jersey and also an untitled web series helmed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK for Amazon Prime Video. Now, there are reports stating that the veteran actor has already signed another movie and will start working on it from the next month.
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the yet to be titled film is said to be the official adaptation of the 2011 French film, Nuit Blanche (Sleepless Night). The pre-production work for the project has already begun and Shahid has been roped in to essay the role of a cop who is chasing drug lords.
In the first schedule, which will be swift and shot across suburban Mumbai, particularly Goregaon, Shahid Kapoor is expected to hit the ground running and go on to shoot an elaborate action sequence.
A source revealed that Shahid will begin his readings and prep next week, before he reports to the set. Meanwhile, director Ali is keeping the groundwork ready for the shooting to commence.
In 2015, Nuit Blanche was remade in Tamil and Telugu as Thoongaa Vanam and Cheekati Rajyam respectively, starring Kamal Haasan.
Meanwhile, on the professional front, Shahid Kapoor is currently waiting for the release of sports film Jersey, written and directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri.
