The latest is that Yash Raj Films, impressed by Shahid’s performance in Jab We Met, has recently signed Shahid for their next production. The film will be directed by Anurag Singh, a close associate of Aditya Chopra. The project will roll from March 2008.
This film will be a love story. A source tells us, “Shahid loved the script and gave the nod to YRF. He is meeting many filmmakers after Jab We Met. He is signing films after much deliberation. He wants to choose the right scripts. Filmmakers are queuing up to sign him these days.”
Here, Shahid seems to have broken his onefilm-at-a-time rule as this is not the only film he’s doing. He is also gearing up for Ken Ghosh’s film, where he sports long hair. After that, he will start shooting for his father’s (Pankaj Kapoor) directorial venture.
Our source adds, “Importantly, Shahid is not ruing the fact that he split with Kareena. Life has never been as good to Shahid as now.” We couldn’t agree more. Lately, Shahid has been seen in close proximity with tennis player Sania Mirza. Shahid remained unavailable for comment.
