This potential collaboration marks a significant step in Kapoor's career, venturing into the realm of historical epics. “Shahid and Ashwin [Varde, producer] We have been in talks for a film based on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj for a while now, and things are slowly falling into place,” revealed a source close to the development. “Back then, they couldn't find the right director, but after multiple conversations with Amit Rai, Shahid feels he is the perfect candidate for his epic on this Indian legend.”
