Abhishek Bachchan Will Be The Surprise Package In The Film

Abhishek, who was last seen in Housefull 3 which released in 2016, will be the surprise package in the film and we are told that he likes the role.

Shahid will be the hero of the film which revolves around the practice of stealing electricity which is rampant in rural areas and small towns in India.

Entire colonies run on stolen bijli. Wires are used to connect homes to the main lines.

We are not sure whether Shahid will play an electricity thief in the film or the man who starts a movement against the practice. But we are sure it will be a riveting story and Abhishek’s addition to the cast just adds to the hype surrounding the film.

KriArj Entertainment has become a champion of interesting cinema. After Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, they have Deepika Padukone-Irrfan Khan starrer gangster drama, Akshay Kumar-Sonam Kapoor-Radhika Apte starrer Padman and Sara Ali Khan’s Bollywood debut Kedarnath.
