Actor Shahid Kapoor is all set to star in Jersey and another film which will be helmed by Raj and DK. There was buzz around the fact that he was also set to make his OTT debut. Now, according to a report in Filmfare, it appears that Kapoor might be turning producer with a project which will stream on a leading OTT platform. “Shahid has been paid to the tune of over Rs. 70-80 crore for a trilogy that he’s going to star in. It’s a period mythological war saga that will be adapted from Amish Tripathi’s novel. Not just that, this will also mark Shahid’s foray into production,” the source told Filmfare.
“Shahid was almost kick-starting his own banner with the Dingko Singh biopic but it fell apart. Now, the platform and he have signed a mutual agreement on this project. It will most likely feature him and is going to be an ambitious period venture designed on the lines of a Baahubali but only for the web. This will also be another mythological project for him after Karna,” the source added.
