Batti Gul Meter Chalu is a social comedy drama which also stars Yami Gautam and Shraddha Kapoor. It is directed by Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’s Shree Narayan Singh.

“Shree Narayan Singh, in Toilet Ek Prem Katha, talked about issues women faced with open defecation. Now he has chosen the electricity issue which will make the film very relatable to the common man,” Shahid had said about his film in a recent interview.

“The story is based in Uttarakhand so I will be using a certain accent and dialect for the film. After playing a King, I will be seen as a small city lawyer,” he added. Yami also plays a lawyer in the film.
