New Delhi: After playing a vengeful lad in upcoming flick 'Haider', Bollywood heartthrob Shahid Kapoor is up for another experimental role in his next. If reports are anything to go by, then both Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt will play characters suffering from insomnia in Vikas Bahl's 'Shaandaar'.
According to reports, Shahid and Alia's character in the film are quirky. The couple apparently meets during a wedding and their common problem helps them bond.
Filmmaker Vikas Bahl and his team of writers reportedly did a lot of research on insomnia and also presented some study material to the two lead actors so that they could get familiar with the problem and its nuances.
'Shandaar' is being touted as India's biggest destination film. The shooting for the flick began just a few days ago in UK.
Besides Shahid and Alia, 'Shandaar' also stars veteran actor Pankaj Kapur and will mark the acting debut of his sister Sanah. It is slated to hit the silver screen sometime in 2015.
