A commentary on power shortage in India and a common man’s struggle to address the problem of skyrocketing electricity bills, the film, which also stars Shraddha Kapoor in a leading role, is set to release on September 21.
The poster is an interesting amalgamation of a city inside fused bulb with an electricity bill in the backdrop. Sharing it, Shahid wrote on Instagram: “It’s current, it’s light, it’s shocking! Batti Gul Meter Chalu trailer will be out on Friday at 12:30 pm.”
Initially delayed because of a rift between Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Prernaa Arora’s KriArj Entertainment, the film began shooting in February and wrapped up the final schedule in July.
It also stars Yami Gautam in a pivotal role.
On the personal front, Shahid is soon to become a father a second time. Shraddha, meanwhile, is busy promoting Stree, her upcoming film with Rajkummar Rao which will hit the theatres on August 31.
