Like Akshay Kumar, Shahid Kapoor Will Now Spread A Social Message. Guess What?
After the success of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, producer Prerna Arora and director Shree Narayan Singh are reuniting for a film which will once again address a social issue.

This time their hero is not Akshay Kumar, who along with Bhumi Pednekar had led a movement to end open defecation in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. Instead it will be Shahid Kapoor and he will headline the cast of a film based on electricity thefts.

SpotboyE.com can tell you that 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.

KriArj Entertainment (co-founded by Prerna Arora and Arjun N Kapoor) has become a champion of interesting cinema. After Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, they have Deepika Padukone-Irrfan Khan starrer Sapna Didi, Akshay Kumar-Sonam Kapoor-Radhika Apte starrer Padman and Sara Ali Khan’s Bollywood debut Kedarnath.
