Shraddha Kapoor‘s claim to fame was Aashiqui 2, however, her last few films such as OK Jaanu, Rock On 2 and Haseena Parkar were major Box Office duds. The actress is struggling to find a stronghold as she desperately needs a hit to revive her career. She does have some interesting films ahead such as Saaho with South superstar Prabhas and the Saina Nehwal biopic. She has also recently been taken on board Batti Gul Meter Chalu, opposite Shahid Kapoor. However, latest reports indicate that Yami Gautam has also signed up for the second female lead in the film, which has not gone down well with Shraddha.
A source was quoted by a leading daily as saying, ” Earlier the makers were eyeing a fresh face but later they decided on Yami.” Perhaps, Shraddha is not too happy playing the second lead in the film. It would be interesting to see the equation between the two female leads during the shooting of the film. The trio of Yami, Shraddha and Shahid will be seen first time together on the big screens. Shahid and Shraddha have, however, worked with each other before in Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Haider’, a desi adaptation of Shakespeare’s play ‘Hamlet’
