Bhushan Kumar and Ahmed Khan have signed the gorgeous Shraddha Kapoor for their next title, Chaalbaaz In London. A joint production venture betweenT-Series and Paper Doll Entertainment, we will see Shraddha playing her first dual role in the film.
The film will be directed by Pankaj Parashar, who also directed the 1989 film Chaalbaaz starring the legendary Sridevi. The film will also mark the reunion of Shraddha and Ahmed after Baaghi 3.
Shraddha Kapoor took to her Instagram to share the announcement video. Her caption read— “CHAALBAAZ in London!!!🔥 SO excited about this! Directed by the one & only Pankaj Parashar and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Ahmed Khan and Shaira Khan”.
The quirky rom-com will have Shraddha playing a double role for the first time. Talking about the same, the actress says—
I feel blessed and fortunate that the makers thought of me for Chaalbaaz In London. This will be my first ever double role and it will definitely be challenging for any actor. Although there’s a huge responsibility on me, I’m happy that Bhushan sir and Ahmed sir feel that I will be able to pull it off. Also, it’s a great opportunity and a learning experience for me to work with Pankaj Sir who has entertained us for so many years. Looking forward to this journey.
Director Pankaj Parashar shares—
Shraddha is like magic on screen. I believe she is going to blow away audiences with her double role. For me, there is nobody better than her for a film like Chaalbaaz In London. I also want to thank Mr Bhushan Kumar and Mr Ahmed Khan for trusting in my vision and idea. I can’t wait to begin work on this project.
Producer, Bhushan Kumar says—
Chaalbaaz In London has been in the planning for some time now. I loved the storyline and quirkiness in the film’s narrative. It’s very commercial and modern, catering to the pan India audience. We are happy to have Shraddha again on board. She has been a thorough professional – very dedicated and easy to work with and hence was always our first choice. Also, Shraddha fits the part really well. It will be interesting to see two different Shraddhas in one film.
Ahmed Khan adds—
Chaalbaaz In London is more like a dream project for me. Shraddha is a fabulous actor and she will play both the characters with equal ease and her comic timing is impeccable. I know how funny Shraddha can be, so she was our obvious choice and when we reached out to her, she obviously jumped at it. It has always been an absolute pleasure teaming up with Bhushan ji because he is a team player who supports the team’s vision completely. We have an entire schedule planned in London and are in the midst of locking actors for the other roles. This is going to be special.
