Shahid Kapoor, who was last seen in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film Padmaavat, is currently busy shooting for Batti Gul Meter Chalu. The actor was reportedly in Dehradun for the film’s shooting. However, he had to cut short the schedule and head back to Mumbai city due to illness. His wife Mira Rajput and daughter Misha were with him on the set. They had caught a bad cold and flu and now the actor has fallen ill, latest reports suggest.
According to a Mid-day report, it was during the shoot of a courtroom scene earlier this week that Shahid, who had a sore throat then, complained of uneasiness.
"Shahid was feeling unwell on Monday, but continued with the shoot nonetheless. His sore throat got aggravated as he had to deliver a dialogue in a high pitch. By Tuesday, he was down with high fever. It was then that the doctor recommended that he take rest. He was also advised to not strain his vocal cords. So, the shoot was cancelled for the day”, a source was quoted as saying to the daily.
Batti Gul Meter Chalu is a light-hearted social drama, and since it is based on the issue of astronomical electricity bills that citizens face, the makers thought it was ideal to launch the title and teaser on the festival of lights, a press release issued read.
Shahid Kapoor had shared Batti Gul Meter Chalu teaser on social media on the occasion of Diwali.
