Though the glorification of toxic masculinity in Kabir Singh (2019) had raised many eyebrows, there's no denying that Shahid Kapoor dominated the box-office with the runaway hit. A year on, having sealed his place as a bankable Bollywood star, it is heard that the actor is set to take a leap of faith and turn producer.

Over the past few months, Kapoor has apparently been in talks with a leading OTT giant for a multi-project deal. "He is expected to headline three offerings, thus foraying into digital entertainment. Shahid, who has been considering turning producer for a while, is keen to bankroll one of the projects with the OTT platform. He has begun the groundwork to set up his studio," reveals a source. It may be recalled that in 2019, Kapoor was to graduate to production with a biopic on the Manipuri boxer, Ngangom Dingko Singh, and had acquired the rights to his story. However, the film with director Raja Krishna Menon has yet to go on floors.
