Meanwhile, in an EXCLUSIVE interview with Pinkvilla, Shahid spoke candidly about Batti Gul Meter Chalu and said, “I feel very fortunate that this film came to me and I could participate in it. I have done a couple of films that dealt with social issues like Haider and Udta Punjab. Well,Batti Gul Meter Chalu is more accessible and is for families.”
“It’s commercial too at the same time but at its heart, it’s very relevant and it needs to be spoken about. I remember when I read the climax, it made me cry and I realized that being a big city kid, I am a part of this problem,” Shahid added.
