According to fresh reports, Shraddha Kapoor might do the next instalment of the hit dance film franchise, ABCD (2013). She was also the female lead in ABCD 2 (2015), the second instalment of the series.

When ABCD 3 was announced earlier this year, Katrina Kaif was roped in to play the female lead opposite Varun Dhawan in the flick. However, the actress walked out of the project a couple of days ago owing to her busy schedule.

After her untimely exit, the makers were looking for a suitable replacement and after a lot of discussions, they seem to have settled for Shraddha Kapoor as she also headlined the second instalment of the series.

Though there were many A-list actresses like Jacqueline Fernandez and Kriti Sanon in the run to bag the lead role, Shraddha Kapoor was always leading the race. However, her name is yet to be announced officially.

Talking about the shooting schedule of the film, a close source says, “The first schedule starts in Amritsar on January 22, and then, we move to London in February. Then there’s another leg in Mumbai in July. The makers are eyeing a November 8, 2019, release for it.”

To be helmed by Remo D’souza, ABCD 3 is being produced by Bhushan Kumar under the banner of T-Series Films.
