Shahid Kapoor currently has Jersey in his kitty, and he will reportedly star in Raj & DK’s web series. The actor has not yet announced his next film after Jersey, and now, according to a report in Bollywood Hungama, the actor will be seen as Karna in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s next.
Karna is a mythological character from Mahabharata. He was the spiritual son of Surya and Duryodhana’s friend. It is said that Mehr always wanted to make a film on Karna, and now, finally, his dream will come true.
Reportedly, the movie will be produced by Ronnie Screvwala and it is tentatively titled Karna. It will be interesting to see if Mehra will make the film as a mythological movie or a modern-day adaptation of the character.
Meanwhile, Mehra’s next film Toofan is in the making and was slated to release in 2020, but it has been postponed, and the new release date is not yet announced.
