Gauri Chaubal

After impressing the audience with his outstanding performance in Kabir Singh, Shahid Kapoor is again collaborating with producer Bhushan Kumar for the action film titled Bull. The duo will also join hands with producers Amar Butala and Garima Mehta for this one. Inspired by true events from the 1980's, Bull will see Shahid playing the titular role of a paratrooper.

With this film, director Aditya Nimbalkar, who has worked with filmmaker Vishal Bharadwaj, will be marking his debut. The principal photography for Bull will begin in 2022.

Speaking about the film, Shahid said:

BULL is a full-blown action film inspired by real events from the life of Brigadier Bulsara. It is a privilege to play a paratrooper who leads his boys through a historic and selfless mission that has now become iconic for its precision and bravado. The opportunity to play a paratrooper is exhilarating and truly an honour.

Meanwhile, Bhushan Kumar, MD, T-Series shared:

We're all set to bring the audience an action extravaganza with our second collaboration with Shahid after Kabir Singh. I'm elated that my association with Amar Butala and Garima Mehta could hold the key to great cinema.

Amar Butala, Partner, Guilty By Association expressed:

We dedicate this film to men in uniforms and our soldiers who brave through unimaginable turmoil to guard this great nation's sovereignty. Shahid will be seen in an exciting avatar. This is also our first association with T- Series and I look forward to it.

And Garima Mehta, Partner, Guilty By Association added:

It's an honour to be able to tell a story that celebrates soldiers. The theme of this film will resonate with viewers across India. I’m delighted that T-Series and Bhushanji have decided to step aboard this journey with us.

The story and screenplay of Bull will be by Aseem Arrora and Parveez Shaikh and the film will go on the floors in 2022. Apart from this, Shahid's Jersey will be released on December 31, 2021 where he will be seen playing a cricket coach. While I am so looking forward to watching that one, Bull too has impressed me already and I can't help but marvel at how versatile Shahid is while picking his roles.
