Shraddha Kapoor, who was last seen in Baaghi 3, has announced yet another exciting project that she will be a part of. The actress will be seen in a double role in the upcoming romantic-comedy titled Chaalbaaz In London. The film will be directed by Pankaj Parashar, who helmed the 1989 Sridevi classic Chaalbaaz. Sharing her excitement about playing a double role in the film, Kapoor said she is thrilled to take on the challenge.
Kapoor took to Instagram to share the news with his fans. She shared a short clip and captioned it as, “CHAALBAAZ in London!!! SO excited for this! Directed by the one & only Pankaj Parashar and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Ahmed Khan and Shaira Khan.” The film is backed by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar’s T- Series and director Ahmed Khan and Shaira Khan’s Paper Doll Entertainment.

In an official statement, Kapoor also said, “Although there’s a huge responsibility on me, I’m happy that Bhushan sir and Ahmed sir feel that I will be able to pull it off. Also, it’s a great opportunity and a learning experience for me to work with Pankaj sir who has entertained us for so many years. Looking forward to this journey.”
Parashar also shared his thoughts on Kapoor coming on board for the film, and said he is very confident that she will be able to pull off the role really well. “For me, there is nobody better than her for a film like ‘Chaalbaaz In London’. I also want to thank Mr Bhushan Kumar and Mr Ahmed Khan for trusting in my vision and idea. I can’t wait to begin work on this project,” added the director.
“We are happy to have Shraddha again on board. She has been a thorough professional – very dedicated and easy to work with and hence was always our first choice. Also, Shraddha fits the part really well. It will be interesting to see two different Shraddhas in one film,” said Kumar on why he got on board for the film. It is still unclear if Chaalbaaz In London is a remake of Sridevi’s 1989 movie Chalbaaz that featured the late actress in a double role.
