Shahid Kapoor may be one of B-town’s hottest actors today with multiple projects awaiting him. However, at a book launch, he threw the audience off-guard with his self-deprecating brand of humour. The actor joked that he is currently without a job so he’d much rather do something useful in his spare time. While Kapoor was being plain funny, there may be some truth to his remark. Reportedly, Kapoor has been in talks for various films including ‘Vettai’, Siddarth Malhotra’s film, ‘Heer Ranjha’, not to mention his having given the go ahead to Maneesh Sharma’s film. However for some strange reason, all films seem to be stuck as of now with the result that all of Shahid’s dates are completely free. Which is also why Shaad Ali has managed to sign on Shahid for his next which is tentatively titled ‘Ek Vanila Do Parathe’. Said the source, “Ultimately, Shahid spoke to Aditya Chopra about availability of dates, and Adi being Adi, immediately offered him Shaad’s film. Shahid loved the script and immediately gave his nod. The film will go on floors in May. Another lead actor and a leading lady are yet to be finalised. However rumour is Parineeti Chopra may be the one.” For Shaad Ali, ‘Ek Vanila Do Parathe’ marks a comeback of sorts after his disastrous ‘Jhoom Barabar Jhoom’. He will now be making his fourth film with the banner after ‘Saathiya’ and ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ became super hits.
