This Abhishek Chaubey film revolves around drug abuse cases in Punjab. And the makers have tried to keep the movie under wraps. But here’s what the lead actors of the film have revealed…

Alia Bhatt and Shahid Kapoor, both have been very experimental with all their films. However, it seems like their next big venture Udta Punjab is one of the toughest roles of their career. Yes! Shahid, who gave an award winning performance in Haider last year, but guess what the actor is ‘scared’ of his role in Udta Punjab. Whereas Alia, who stunned us with a film like Highway, too has declared Udta Punjab as the ‘big risk’ of her career.

Alia plays a hockey player in Udta Punjab. Talking about the same, the actress said at a recent event, “The film that I am doing right now (Udta Punjab) is a big risk that I have taken so far in my career. I still can’t talk about the film but it is definitely the hardest film, hardest character that I have played till date.” Shahid too had resonated a similar thought on his Insta account where he had posted a picture of the film’s script and the accompanying text read – “Scariest part I have played yet have no clue how I’m going to get it right . Wish me luck guys.”

While the actors claim that Chaubey’s this directorial venture is quite challenging the expectations around it are extremely high too. Especially because of  the casting coup that the makers have managed. Apart from Shahid and Alia this film will also see Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh in prominent roles. Such is the buzz around this film that looks of each of these actors have been leaked by fans online. Shahid too has given us a sneak peek at his pony tail with a blue streak. Kareena will be seen in a desi avatar. And while we’re yet to see Alia’s look for the film, we can’t to see what the film itself has in store for us.
