Shahid Becomes Mira Nair’s First Choice
Shahid Kapoor may be having a low time now-a-days, but surprisingly he has become the international film director Mira Nair’s first choice. She has reportedly chosen Shahid for a role in her upcoming movie based on a novel.
‘Midnight’s Children’ has come to a halt now as Mira is stuck with choices for the film, but she has decided to make a film on a novel by Mohsin Hamid titled ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’.
When she thought about the lead character, then she stopped for Shahid as a choice. In fact, she has chosen Shahid over Ranbir and has said that the former has more intensity for the required role.
Shahid will play a Pakistani man, who lets go his life of fame in America after a broken love-affair and the 9/11 terrorists attacks.
The novel tells the story in the form of a dialogue between Changez (lead role offered to Shahid) and an American he meets at a cafe in Lahore. The dialogues intrigues into Changez’s life after the 9/11 attack in America.
Sources add further about Shahid’s acceptance of the offer, “Mira has already met Shahid. The actor loves the script. The necessary formalities are being worked out as both Mira and Shahid are extremely excited about the film and want to start working on it by early next year.”
