The film has been directed by Shree Narayan Singh, who also helmed Akshay Kumar's 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha'. It brings Shraddha and Shahid on screen for the second time. The two had romanced each other in Vishal Bhardwaj’s critically acclaimed film Haider in 2014.
'Batti Gul Meter Chalu' has been produced by T-Series and KriArj Entertainment.
This is Shahid's first film after the birth of his son, Zain Kapoor. Shahid welcomed the baby boy with wife Mira Rajput on September 5 this year. The little bundle of joy is their second child after Misha, who was born on August 26, 2016.
Two days after the newborn came into this world, proud papa Shahid took to his social media handle and introduced his baby boy as Zain Kapoor.
