Known for trying out new projects, Shahid Kapoor has always experimented with his choice of films. From playing the macho crazy lover to a cricketer, the actor recently was seen in varied roles. And now we have some information about his film with Sultan director Ali Abbas Zafar. The film, which is titled Bloody Daddy, has finalized its OTT platform and it will be on Voot Select.
As per recent reports the makers have decided to skip the theatrical release as it will exclusively premiere on Voot Select. Even though they haven’t finalized the date, if these reports are to be believed, they have decided to release it in the final quarter of the year. For the uninitiated, Bloody Daddy is expected to be a remake of the 2011 French film Nuit Blanche (Sleepless Nights) starring Tomer Sisley. The action thriller will feature Shahid Kapoor as a loving father, who is on the run to save his child from the mafia.
As per a source quote on Bollywood Hungama, “The action saga has Shahid playing a father who tries to save his child and involves a lot of blood and gore, so the title suits the film. It’s a tentative working title but in all probabilities, this would be the title they lock.” Well this is not the first time Nuit Blanche is remade in India, since it was already remade in Tamil and Telugu with Kamal Haasan as Thoongaa Vanam and Cheekati Rajyam respectively.
Speaking about Shahid Kapoor, the Jersey actor will also be making his OTT series debut with Farzi that is directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK. On the other hand, this is Ali Abbas Zafar’s next project after the Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia starrer Tandav which released on Amazon Prime.
