We were the first ones to tell you that the Shahid's Batti Gul Meter Band, produced by Prerna Arora of KriArj Entertainment, is based on electricity thefts. The film revolves around the practice of stealing electricity which is rampant in rural areas and small towns in India. It is being directed by Toilet: Ek Prem Katha director Shree Narayan Singh. The leading lady opposite Shahid is yet to be cast.

Shahid has finished work on Padmavati and has already started work on Batti Gul... More than twice he has been spotted at the airport, his face covered with a black scarf, avoiding the cameras, making a run for his car. Has he been hiding his new look for the film from the media, we wonder?

Coming back to Sadak 2, being produced by Vishesh Films, the sequel is reported to be in the league of Aashiqui 2. As for the August 31, 2018 box-office, if neither Sadak 2, nor Batti Gul Meter Band withdraws from the race, this will be an interesting clash.
