After ‘Padmaavat’, Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor is busy in learning Garhwali accent for his next movie ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’, trade sources said on Tuesday.
The shooting for ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ will begin from February 9.
Shahid, who plays a local from Uttarakhand, has immersed himself completely in the process of getting into his character going as far as to hire a language coach from Uttarakhand.
The ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ producer Prernaa Arora said,”I’ve very rarely seen such passion and dedication in any actor. Shahid Kapoor is 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.”
‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’, which will highlight the shortage of electricity in rural areas, will go on floors in the first week of February and will finish shooting by April 2018.
The film will be shot in Rishikesh, Tehri, Haridwar, Mussoorie and Nainital. It is slated to release on August 31, 2018.
