Nitesh Tiwari’s next might star Shraddha Kapoor as the female lead

After announcing his next on 24th May, filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari is now busy finalizing the cast of his upcoming directorial venture after Dangal (2016). While Sushant Singh Rajput is almost locked to play the male lead in the movie, the latest we hear that Shraddha Kapoor is in the running to bag the female lead role.

Plot and other important details regarding the film are being kept secret by the makers, but some informers reveal that the movie is set in an engineering college and talks about how to take success and failure in one’s stride. Shraddha is, reportedly, quite keen to be a part of the project.

“The actress has had multiple meetings with the makers and is keen to come on board the film, but is yet to sign on the dotted line,” a source reveals to a popular Indian tabloid.

If the news turns out to be true, it will be the first time when Shraddha shares the screen space with Sushant Singh Rajput. It will also mark the first association of both the actors with director Nitesh Tiwari.

The untitled project is expected to go to sets in November and we hear that Sushant and Shraddha will allot bulk dates to the makers so that they can wrap up the movie in a start-to-finish schedule.

The film will be bankrolled by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and Fox Star Studios.

It releases on 30th August, 2019.
