Today, Shraddha Kapoor revealed that she will star in a new Hindi film called Chaalbaaz in London. It looks like the pandemic won’t stop the film industry from working. With all the precautions and safety measures, the actors and directors are shooting their projects. Talking about the actress’ new film, what’s interesting is that it will be helmed by Pankuj Parashar, who directed Sridevi starrer Chaalbaaz (1989).
On her Instagram page, the Chhichhore actress made the big announcement. She also shared an official announcement promo. T-Series is going to back Kapoor’s new project. Shraddha captioned the post, “CHAALBAAZ in London!!!🔥
SO excited for this! Directed by the one & only Pankaj Parashar and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Ahmed Khan and Shaira Khan.”
It is not yet confirmed if the film is going to be a remake of the 1989 film or not. Are the makers not revealing it yet because they are worried about fans’ reaction? Well, only time will tell. We already saw how disappointed movie lovers were with Coolie No 1 remake starring Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan.
