Dangal fame director Nitesh Tiwari is all set for his next venture and he has reportedly finalised Shraddha Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput for the upcoming project. A day after the new film was announced, a Mumbai Mirror report claimed Shraddha has joined the film that has Sushant playing the lead role of an engineering student.
The filmmaker took to Twitter on Friday to make the announcement. “Looking forward to being a part of the #SajidNadiadwala and #FoxStarStudios family for my next, after Dangal. A story I am excited to tell. Releases on 30th August 2019. Cast to be announced soon, stay tuned! @NGEMovies @foxstarhindi,” Tiwari tweeted. The trio has got huge blockbusters to their names, separately. This new collaboration makes for an interesting watch.

The tabloid quoted a source as saying, “The actress has had multiple meetings with the makers and is keen to come on board the film, but is yet to sign on the dotted line.”
Shraddha was recently seen in Haseena where she played the sister of Dawood, Haseena.Parker. She is also said to have signed Sushant Singh’s Chanda Mama Door Ke. “The story revolves around three astronauts, played by Sushant, Nawazuddin and Shraddha. The film’s team is looking to begin shooting by September-end. Before that happens, Shraddha will kick off her own intensive training for the part,” the tabloid quoted another source as saying.
While the collaboration of Nadiadwala and Fox is known to deliver commercial films, Tiwari’s last outing Dangal was about an underdog story.
According to the official statement, the story in question would be “about the generation of today”.
The film is slated to hit the theatres on August 30, 2019.
