Shahid Kapoor has completed filming for Raj & DK's Prime Video web series and has begun work on his next film with director Ali Abbas Zafar. The actor posted a photo of himself with the Sultan director to his Instagram story, captioning it “Day 1. Blood, grime and lots of action. Here we go… Ali Abbas Zafar… Better get your game face on.”
Shahid and Ali, dressed in all-black, are seen chatting and laughing with each other in the photograph as they were candidly photographed. He captioned the photo, ‘Let’s get this started @shahidkapoor … are you ready for a crazy, quirky, mad ride of guns & gangs.’
Zafar also announced the start of their new project's filming. “Let’s get this started @shahidkapoor…..are you ready for a crazy, quirky, mad ride of guns & gangs,” the 39-year-old writer-director wrote, without elaborating.
The film is said to be the official adaptation of the French film "Nuit Blanche" (Sleepless Night) from 2011, which was adapted into a Tamil film starring Kamal Haasan.
According to reports, Kapoor will play a cop pursuing drug lords.
Nuit Blanche was previously remade in Tamil and Telugu with Kamal Haasan as Thoongaa Vanam and Cheekati Rajyam.
Currently, Shahid is getting prepared for the December 31 release of Jersey. The film was originally produced in Telugu and directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri. Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapur co-star in the Hindi version.
Ali Abbas Zafar's most recent project was the web series Tandav for Prime Video, which sparked a lot of buzz on the social media.
