Yami Gautam was last seen in Kaabil, co-starring Hrithik Roshan. And now the wait is over as the actress is all set to spread her magic again on screen with Batti Gul Meter Chalu. Directed by Toilet: Ek Prem Katha fame Shree Narayan Singh, the title and lead actor of the film were announced during Diwali, 2017. However, the name of lead actress was kept under wraps. But finally we got to know that it is Yami who will be part of the project. On January 6, the pretty actress expressed her happiness on Twitter. She wrote, ''Super happy to commence this special journey with @kriarj on ‘ Batti Gul Meter Chalu ‘ :) Really excited for this one #Prerna #Shree @shahidkapoor @ShraddhaKapoor.''
Everything was fine, even Shahid Kapoor welcomed her and wrote, ''Great to have you on board.'' But one thing that grabbed everyone's attention was Shraddha Kapoor's name. KriArj Entertainment hasn't made any official announcement about roping in Shraddha for the movie but if we go by Yami's tweet, it seems that the Haseena Parkar actress is also part of it. Shraddha is currently busy shooting for Saaho. There are also reports that biopic on Saina Nehwal in which Shraddha is playing the titular role has been shelved.
Great to have you on board. 👍👍 https://t.co/A4zNRut2Zv— Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) January 6, 2018
