In between all of this, post Shraddha, Ekta Kapoor had also approached Kriti Sanon for the same. But again Kriti declined the film reciting date issues. Source further adds that Parineeti has already heard the script and she has liked it. Meanwhile, we wait for an official confirmation from Parineeti as well as the makers of the film.
Shraddha Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra last appeared together in Mohit Suri’s Ek Villain. The duo’s chemistry was quite much loved by the audiences. Considering that response in mind, Ekta Kapoor decided to bring them back together on the big screen. The filmmaker even approached Shraddha for her film – Shotgun Shaadi opposite Sidharth Malhotra.
But from what we hear now, Shraddha turned down the offer and won’t be seen opposite Sidharth in the film. Reportedly, the actress heard the script and initially showed interest in the story. It’s now being said that makers of the film have approached Parineeti Chopra to play the female lead.
Based on the issue of groom kidnapping in Bihar, Shotgun Shaadi will be directed by debutant Prashant Singh, a former assistant of Aanand L Rai. Parineeti and Sidharth’s chemistry was loved by their fans in Hasee Toh Phasee and that was the reason Ekta decided to approach Parineeti.
Other than this, Parineeti will also be seen in Vipul Shah’s Namastey England opposite Arjun Kapoor and Dharma Productions’ Kesari alongside Akshay Kumar.
