Dangal fame director Nitesh Tiwari is all set for his next venture and as reported earlier Shraddha Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput are finalised for his untitled next produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Fox Studios. Joining the starcast as the main negative lead is Prateik Babbar, fresh from the success of Ahmed Khan’s Baaghi 2 and Anubhav Sinha’s Mulk. The actor has reportedly started his basketball and football training for the film as seen from his social media accounts.
A student-drama with a social message, the film is set in an engineering college and is about embracing success and failure with equanimity. The film is expected to roll by November 2018 and release in August 2019.
Nitesh, who bagged the Filmfare Best Director Award for Dangal, last co-wrote the hit romcom, Bareilly Ki Barfi, with Shreyas Jain, which was directed by his filmmaker wife, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and he has co-written his next as well.
On the professional front, Prateik is busy shooting for Mahesh Majrekar’s next Devidas Thakur
