Alia Bhatt and Sharvari Wagh will soon collaborate on a film together. Shiv Rawail, who made his debut as a filmmaker with Netflix’s ‘The Railway Men’, will helm the YRF-produced project. In the film, the actors will portray super agents.
As per India Today, a trade source said, “Shiv‘s debut directorial for YRF, The Railway Men, is a humongous hit and he is the talk of the town today. He is young and has a brilliant pulse on what the youth would want to consume as entertainment, as is evident with the global success that he has delivered under the guidance of Aditya Chopra. Thus, Adi is confident that he is the best director to helm the young female-led action entertainer from the YRF Spy Universe that stars Alia Bhatt in the lead with the rising star of the industry, Sharvari.”
Shiv, who worked as an assistant director on several of Aditya Chopra’s movies, recently released The Railway Men, a global hit streaming series on Netflix. It went on to become the top show in South Asia and soared to third position on the global charts. The Railway Men is also the first and only show from India to remain on the global charts for eight weeks in a row, creating history.
Production on the movie, in which Alia and Sharvari will portray “super agents,” is scheduled to begin in 2024.
