Riding on the massive success of ‘Kabir Singh’, Shahid Kapoor turned out to be a box office hero with his film grossing the highest this year. ‘Kabir Singh’ also gifted Shahid, his first solo Rs 100 crore film, which went on to cross the Rs 200 crore mark as well.
Now rumour mills are abuzz that the actor will be doing another remake from the south, this time Nani starrer ‘Jersey’ that will be produced by the film’s original makers Dil Raju.
The makers have offered Kannada actress Rashmika Mandanna to play the female lead opposite Shahid. The actor and the makers zeroed in on Rashmika, who is a known face down the south, while deliberating whom to cast in the role.
The actress has already been offered the role and has also expressed an interest in the film. However, many things need to be discussed before the actress is confirmed for the role. If true, then the film will mark the Bollywood debut of Rashmika Mandanna.
The film is expected to go on the floors in November this year. Rashmika was recently seen in Vijay Deverakonda’s ‘Dear Comrade’. The actress will be next seen in Mahesh Babu’s ‘Sarileru Neekevvaru’.
