Shahid Kapoor is busy prepping for Shree Narayan Singh's next venture Batti Gul Meter Chalu. A lot has been said about the leading lady of the film. 
Earlier, there were reports that Katrina Kaif has been approached for the film and it was because of her tight-packed schedule, she couldn't step in. At an event yesterday, Shahid said, "No heroine has been decided for that film yet. Once it's finalised I'll let you know." 
Just today, the reports came that Shraddha Kapoor might be a part of the film. A source told a leading tabloid, "Negotiations with Shraddha are on. She is yet to give her nod. But, she should be able to work on it."
When we got in touch with director Shree Narayan Singh, he dismissed all the reports and said, "I have met a lot of people. You know we are still at the scripting stage and till the script is not ready, how can I say who will play the role. So, the role of the leading lady in the film is really important as the film is set in a different place and has a different language. Yes, I am meeting everybody, I mean the names which have been popped up."
Singh had earlier said, "I am thrilled to begin work on Batti Gul in Uttarakhand. There is a different vibe here which keeps bringing me back to this beautiful state. Showing a new side to it will be a big challenge."

These are the top picks? what does that say?

Shraddha's best choice for this movie.I love Shraddha

I doubt kat will work with shahid. She may end up working with varun and Ranveer but not shahid. Rather she would choose to work with big stars. I bet her next film will be with Akki and then next will be with Hritik. One more flop can wipeout her career.

Shahid kapoor is not a superstar. Katrina was once a superstar when she was young and dream girl of country but as soon as she hits her 30s and aging sings started to show on her face she lost her dream girl image and also her desirable image owing to her affair and breakup with rk. Shradhha is struggling to proove herself an A lister.

Irrespective of katrina or shraddha film will be a flop or some 50-60 CR avg grosser. I cant remember a single shahid kapoor solo hero film which was hit. May be JWM which was a decade earlier and lets not forget that kt was kareena who made the film awesome with her character. Padmavati is a 150 CR budget film it is bound to do good business. But after that film shahid will again deliver flops even though he has improved so much.

shraddha is probably the worst actress of this generation and katrina cannot speak hindi...seems like shahid doesnt want ti be upstaged

why not someone fresh? like radhika or sobhita or the heroine from chef or parvathy from qarib qarib? shahid is commercial enough. get someone goodlooking but edgy. please?

Kat would be a good choose.I want to see her with shahid for so long

Shraddha any day, she is the most popular actress right now and is gonna be huge after saaho.
She deserves all this because she is simply so genuine amd beautiful

this picture of katrina is from 2012... DAMN SHE CHANGED SOOOOOO MUCH. #WTF

Shraddha is a much more hardworking and humble person. Plus being the most beautiful actress in btown dosnt hurt

wow katrinas days are out when a b list actress is taking instead of her... but shredda is younger and can act better then katrina.

Both Katrina and Shahid debuted the same year, but 14 years later never worked with each other. It would be good to see a new pairing. You don't see constant joris in Hollywood.

Thank God we don't want oldie Katrina

Shraddha is prettier but both suck at acting.

Oh god please not i wanna see Katrina with akshay hrithik salman srk amir or ajay as well
But not with shahid even if she wants to work with young actors than varun in abcd or ranveer
Bc deepika ranbir has awesome chemistry wanna she how ranveer and Katrina going to look with each other
And there star sign are also similar both are cancerian both will look epic with each other

katrina will look like his mom paired with him.

Both of them cant act...so doesnt matter

Reality is no one is considering Katrina now she's getting movies thanks to salman. There are younger better actresses who charge less too

Shraddha please

I don't think Katrina will consider working with flop Shahid. Even if Padmavati clicks, it's because of Deepika and Ranveer and Shahid will always remain a flop actor.

Well Katrina is a flop herself so...why would Shahid want to work with her? Even if Kat does films with big stars, the film doesn't do well because of her but the bigger name.

Damn Kat looks like a different person in that pic...so crazy

Kat was so f*****g preety at tht time when this pic is taken

Katrina looks so adorable

Katrina is looking so good in that pic.

Katrina is appropriate for the movie

Katrina is appropriate.
