Siddharth Malhotra to play lead in “Shotgun Shaadi”
Siddharth Malhotra will reportedly be playing the lead role in the Ekta Kapoor’s production “Shotgun Shaadi”. The movie will revolve around the groom kidnappings of Bihar. In order to play the perfect kidnapper who forces grooms to get married forcefully, Siddharth has also started taking Bihari diction classes.
The producer-actor duo had worked together last in “Ek Villian” in 2014. Ekta Kapoor and Sid are teaming up again for “Shotgun Shaadi”. And whose name is being taken to play the lead role along Sid? None other than Shraddha Kapoor. The cherry on the cake is, Mohit Suri might be directing the movie.
The film is based on the popular practice in Bihar wherein the families of the bride abduct the groom in order to avoid dowry. The film will be an edgy love story with Siddharth’s character being one of its kind.
Earlier, Sidharth had mentioned that he was in talks for a romantic film and how he was looking forward to do a romantic quintessential film after a long time. Although nothing has been confirmed yet.
Siddharth will be seen next as Captain Vikram Batra in the Kargil martyr’s biopic.
