Just a few days ago, it was announced that director Nitesh Tiwari will be uniting with Sushant Singh Rajput for his next untitled film. The movie will be co-produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Fox Star Studio and will see Sushant play the role of an engineering student.

Now according to Mumbai daily, Shraddha Kapoor has been finalised to play the female lead in the film. The untitled film releases on August 30, 2019.

Nitesh had shared the news on Twitter writing, “A story I am excited to tell. Releases on August 30, 2019. Cast to be announced soon, stay tuned.”

The movie is expected to go on floors by November and will apparently have a start-to-finish schedule.

A source told the publication, “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.”

In the meantime, Sushant is working on Kedarnath wherein he will be seen opposite Sara Ali Khan. The movie has been in the troubled waters for the longest time and is said to release in December this year.

On the other hand, Shraddha Kapoor will be seen opposite Shahid Kapoor in Shree Narayan Singh’s Batti Gul Meter Chalu, after Haider. Batti Gul Meter Chalu also stars Yami Gautam in the lead role.

After finishing the shooting schedule in Uttarakhand’s Tehri area, Shahid and Shraddha have resumed shooting on the sets of the film in Mumbai.
