Director Abhishek Varman is keen on signing his ''2 States'' lead actor, Arjun Kapoor for his next film ''Shiddat'', which also stars Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan. However, Arjun is still contemplating starring in the two-hero film.
Reportedly, Arjun is mulling over his decision to star in the partition-era period drama as he doesn't want to get overshadowed in the film, where Varun's role is well sketched. The film, which is produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and Sajid Nadiadwala's Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, is a love triangle.
Meanwhile, Arjun is working on Mohit Suri's Half Girlfriend, which also stars Shraddha Kapoor.
