Batti Gul Meter Chalu: Yami Gautam to pair up with Shahid Kapoor? – Yami Gautam, who was seen opposite Hrithik Roshan in Kaabil and Amit Sadh in Sarkar 3, is all set to work with Shahid Kapoor. The actress will play the second female lead in Batti Gul Meter Chalu, which also stars Shraddha Kapoor. We were the first to tell you that the social drama, directed by Shree Narayan Singh, would have an actress in a special appearance. Now, sources tell us that Yami has been approached for that part and will be seen as a lawyer.
While this will be Shahid’s second outing with Shraddha after Haider, it’s the first time that the actor will share screen space with Yami. The movie is likely to go on the floors in the second week of February. Based around the subject of escalating electricity bills, the film features Shahid as a lawyer. The film will be extensively shot in Haridwar, Rishikesh, Tehri, Mussoorie, and Nainital. The makers plan to release it on August 31, 2018.
