Padmaavat Over, Shahid Kapoor Plunges Into Batti Gul Meter Chalu, Hires Coach To Learn Garhwali

If  Hrithik Roshan  is  busy brushing up his Bihari accent  to play his Bihari character  in Vikas Bahl’s  Super 30,Shahid Kapoor  is equally busy doing up his Garhwali accent.

The shooting  of Shahid Kapoor’s next  film Batti Gul Meter Chalu is about to begin from February 9.Shahid  who plays a local from Uttarakhand is leaving no stone unturned to ensure authenticity in his portrayal.The actor known  to follow a method in the madness of Bollywood’s filmmaking, has immersed himself completely in the process of getting into character  going as far as to hire  a  language coach from Uttarakhand.

Shahid’s dedication to getting into character has left  the Batti Gul producer  Prernaa Aroraspeechless. “I’ve very rarely seen such  passion and dedication in  any actor. Shahid Kapooris completely involved in getting his  character right. He is  getting the clothes, the body language  and  the spoken language right. He has hired a coach to learn the local  language. It’s  very inspiring for  a relatively  new producer like me  to work with an actor so focused.I am enjoying the experience  of working with Shahid Kapoor.”

Shahid moves  to  Uttarkhand from the first week of February. Batti Gul Meter Chalu, which will highlight the shortage of electricity in rural areas, will hit the floors in the first week of February and will finish shooting by April  2018. The film will be shot in a start-to-finish schedule in Rishikesh, Tehri, Haridwar, Mussoorie and Nainital. It is slated to release on 31 August 2018 .
