After a lot of speculation, actor finally signs Prabhu Deva's next action film

After their bonding together at a recently held awards event, it comes as no big surprise that the actor has signed up to do the choreographer-turned-director's next film, titled Namak. The project is based on the drug trade in Madhya Pradesh and will see the actor in an action avatar.

Our source says, "Prabhu Dheva has been keen that he signs Shahid for the film. He has seen his intense portrayal in Vishal Bharadwaj's film. He will however give him the mass entertaining image.

Shahid was keen to also see the feedback that he receives as Javed in the 1910 period of his upcoming film with Kunal Kohli as that is a character appealing to the masses. To top it all, both Sasha and Prabhu bonded big time at a recently concluded award ceremony making it easier for Shahid to sign the film."

The source adds, "Prabhu Devaa is one of the most sought after directors and is known for his action films. Shahid has never done hardcore raw action before and it will be interesting to see him in an out and out action drama."

Shahid Kapoor confirmed the news and said, "Yes, I am working with Prabhu Dheva and it is a full on masala film."
