    Shahid Kapoor to play a cop chasing drug lords in Ali Abbas Zafar's next, will commence shoot this month?

    Shahid Kapoor has been toiling quite hard for the last few years. The Kabir Singh actor prepped hard for Jersey and after finishing it, he shot for his debut web series with Raj and DK. But, there's no break for the actor who would reportedly begin the shoot of yet another upcoming project from later this month! And this one would be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar .

    If a report in Mid Day is to be believed, then the film will be based on the 2011 French film, Nuit Blanche (Sleepless Night). Shahid will don a cop avatar who would be chasing drug lords. In fact, the first sequence itself will be an elaborate action scene. A source quoted by the daily said, “Shahid will begin his readings and prep next week before he reports to the set. Meanwhile, Ali is keeping the groundwork ready. The first schedule will be swift, shot across suburban Mumbai, particularly Goregaon.” The pre-production work too seems to have been done.

    There has been no official confirmation of the same. This won't be the first time that Nuit Blanche would be adapted in Indian films. Earlier, it was remade in Tamil and Telugu as Thoongaa Vanam and Cheekati Rajyam.
