Shahid pulling strings for KJo film

Opportunity knocks at your door just once, they say. However, for Shahid Kapoor, a chance to work with Dharma Productions has presented itself not once but thrice. The actor, who couldn’t work in Karan Johar’s ‘Kaal’ in 2005 had to wait seven years to be offered another film from the production house. Sadly, due to date issues, the actor had to opt out of the Punit Malhotra directorial as well. Shahid had then said, “I hope it doesn’t take us another seven years to work again.” And thankfully, his wish has just come true albeit with a little prodding by the actor himself. Shahid, after KJo’s production fell through, was approached by Siddharth Roy Kapoor for the Hindi remake of the Tamil blockbuster ‘Vettai’. Seizing this opportunity, the actor asked the UTV head to get Karan Johar to co-produce the venture, which will finally add the much-coveted ‘Dharma film’ to his resume. This managed to magically fix Karan Johar’s problems – Firstly, the filmmaker without having to upset his other productions or Punit Malhotra got a project with Shahid. Also, he got a big film like ‘Vettai’ in his kitty without having to fight for its remake rights. And lastly, he did not have to make Shahid wait for another seven years. Perhaps for the first time, tinsel town’s very own peacemaker and problem solver got his dilemma sorted.
