Not only did Shahid share the poster, but also revealed the release date of the trailer of the film.
In many of his interviews, Shahid Kapoor has claimed that Batti Gul Meter Chalu is a very special film for him and that he agreed to do the film because his wife Mira Rajput liked the script a lot.
Batti Gul Meter Chalu is about bringing the social issue of electricity shortage to the notice of people and to encourage authorities to investigate the inaccuracies of electricity bills.
Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, the film will also see Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam in pivotal roles.
