Alia Bhatt, Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan are teaming up for Abhishek Chaubey’s film Udta Punjab which deals with the issue of drug peddling in Punjab. The film is definitely nothing like Jab We Met and it has Bebo and Sasha’s tracks running separately.
A source reveals that Alia will be playing a drug addict in the film. This will be a rather intense role to portray as Alia has never acted in that kind of space before. Her portrayal of an abused and kidnapped youngster in Highway won her many accolades so she has a lot of pressure on her shoulders to outperform herself in Udta Punjab.
Playing the role of a drug addict will be difficult for Alia on another count. Alia, though young, will have to make her viewers believe that she is a drug addict. Apart from her acting, her make up in the film will also be such that will lend to her character who is addicted to substances. We are yet to find out what role Shahid will play in this picture. All we know so far is that he is sporting a bohemian look for the film. Kareena will be sporting a desi look, wearing simple salwar kameez as her character is supposed to be that of a working woman.
