After actors like Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn and Arjun Rampal, now is the turn of Shahid Kapoor to play a tough cop.
The 31-year-old will be seen donning the khaki uniform for "A Wednesday" director Neeraj Pandey's next project. Earlier, he played an Indian Air Force officer in "Mausam".
Shanti Sivaram, who handles Shahid's work on behalf of Bling! Entertainment Solutions, confirmed the news. "Yes, Shahid Kapoor will be seen in (khaki) uniform for the first time."
Shahid, who has so far played a business tycoon, a teacher and a bookie, has already started preparations to get into the skin of his character.
Besides, the actor has also bagged Prabhudeva's "Namak", in which he teams up with Sonakshi Sinha, and director Rajkumar Santoshi's "Phata Poster Nikla Hero" opposite Ileana D'cruz.
