Abhishek Verman and Karan Johar’s Shiddat will feature Arjun Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan.
Shiddat will be a period drama set in the partition era. Shiddat will feature Arjun Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan in a love triangle. Karan Johar will be producing the film under the banner of Dharma Productions and Abhishek Verman will be directing it.
According to a leading daily, “See, Alia and Varun are on board, but Arjun is still mulling over his decision. And here’s why. Shiddat is a period drama set against Partition-era Lahore. It is a love triangle between the three actors, but with unequal roles. Arjun plays the good guy, while Varun plays the anti-hero, which obviously is a better-sketched character with more layers to him. The anti-hero usually gets accolades and audience appreciation and that is Arjun’s dilemma. He doesn’t want to be overshadowed by Varun’s character. He has asked the makers to make some changes in his role and get back to him. While he is interested in the role, he wants more depth to his character to make it stronger.”
We hope Arjun Kapoor works things out with the makers and we get to see Alia Bhatt, Arjun Kapoor and Varun Dhawan together for the first time!
