A complete revelation about the Varun Dhawan-Alia Bhatt starrer Shiddat

Yes, folks! It’s finally happening. Abhishek Verman’s period film tentatively titled as Shiddat has been in the news for the longest time for its star cast. While several names did the rounds, we can now tell you that this partition drama will be starring Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt and Sridevi.

It was stated that the film will see the return of Gumrah duo Sanjay Dutt and Sridevi after 25 years. Earlier, a source close to the production house had informed that indeed the actors have been approached for the movie. “Sridevi and Sanjay Dutt have been approached for the movie. But they both are yet to give a nod,” revealed the source.

But now, ace Designer Manish Malhotra spilled the beans about the same. He told a leading daily, “I am working on a period film starring Varun and Alia, Sanjay Dutt, Sridevi, Aditya Roy Kapur, so that’s a big cast. It will be a period film of a period I feel close to, it is during partition between 1945 to 1947.”

Well, Abhishek Varman has given us a gem with 2 States and we hope the director takes this story to a new level and amazes us! Abhishek Varman has also written the story of Shiddat, rather than just directing it! The film would be produced by Dharma Productions in association with Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and it is expected to be released in last quarter of 2018.

Varun and Alia have done three films together until now – Student of The Year, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, and Badrinath Ki Dulhania. Their cute chemistry both on and off-screen has been setting serious BFF and relationship goals for all their fans. And considering Shiddat, we are really hopeful about the film.

  • 2017 might have been a bad year for Bollywood, considering the bad movies, and the scarce Box Office collections that the movies made. Also, the controversies surrounding the movies this year, did them more harm than good. But, there are still a few movies from 2017, that we would watch again someday.
  • We have all heard struggle stories of our favourite celebrities, some have been waiters, and some might have been junior artists. But, too many have been backup dancers. From a field that has potentially more than a million people in it, these stars shone so brightly, that they became the cream of Bollywood. These stars started their journey with dancing behind superstars and are now working with them.
  • Bollywood is filled with people, who excel at acting. But other than acting and the storyline, there is another thing that makes our films blockbusters. Dancing! Bollywood movies are filled with dancers. Some dance like they have two left feet, but some, dance like there is no tomorrow. These are the dancers, we are paying a tribute to today.
  • Madame Tussauds is a gem in the age of modern museums, and the capital has become the lucky holder of this gem. Delhiites have become a part of the lucky few, who can now visit these lifelike celebrity wax statues. But, our favourite part is the amazing resemblance, and in some cases the disparity, of these wax figurines.
  • You fall in love and vow to spend the rest of your life with each other. Such is the beauty of a marriage. The end, however, is not always as beautiful. Blame it on fame, gorgeous looks or the fact that cupid's arrows strike again and again in the glamour world, but Bollywood couples have to face the ugly truth of infidelity, divorces, and break-ups ever so often.
  • In Bollywood, there was a time, when supporting actors did not receive the appreciation they do now. They were looked at as mere pawns to make the lead look good. But times have changed, and talented artists have taken these so called side roles, and evolved them into the backbone of the films. They are now taking the limelight, and sometimes even overshadow the leads.
