Directed by Shashank Khaitan, the film also mark the acting debuts of Lakshya and Gurfateh Pirzada. Ahead of its shoot, the actors are currently reading scripts and undergoing workshops for their first film.
Last week, Zoom had reported that the film has been indefinitely postponed. A report in the portal cited a ‘well-placed source’ saying the film has either been shelved or indefinitely postponed. This wasn’t verified by the producers, however.
Earlier in March this year, the makers had unveiled the poster of Bedhadak. In Shanaya’s first look poster, she was seen in a pink and grey top with her face covered in wind-swept hair. She was introduced as Nimrit in the movie. “Introducing the gorgeous @shanayakapoor as Nimrit in #Bedhadak. An enchanting force to look out for, I can’t wait to see the energy she brings onto the screen!” said Karan Johar.
The film also stars Lakshay, who was supposed to make his debut with the now-shelved Dostana 2. Besides Lakshay and Shanaya, it will also have Gurfateh Pirzada.
Bedhadak is produced by Dharma Productions. Before her first film, Shanaya already made a splash this year when walked the ramp for Manish Malhotra at Lakme Fashion Week 2022. Besides acting, she is also a trained belly dancer and is no less than a star on social media.
