TV's handsome actor Taher Shabbir became a household name for his stint of Viraj Singh Rathore in Nisha Aur Uske Cousins. The actor won many accolades as well as hearts with this stint. However, his fame is not only bound to telly town. The actor has starred in many popular films and in prominent roles. He was seen in Shah Rukh Khan's Fan in 2016 and also in Naam Shabana in 2017. Now, Taher is up for a hattrick and will be seen in Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi.
Yes, you read it right! The actor will be seen in the role of Sangram Singh in Kangana Ranaut's upcoming project. For the ones who don't know, Sangram Singh joined Rani Laxmibai in 1857's rebellion and jointly defeated the British in several wars. The movie also marks Ankita Lokhande's debut as Jhalkari Bai. The Pavitra Rishta actress will be seen as her right hand in this movie. The actor, who is already a pro in horse-riding will begin his shoot from the end of this month at ND Studio in Karjat, after the team wraps up the two songs. One is already being shot and will star Ankita and Kangana. The other will be shot on September 18 with Kangana and Jisshu Sengupta, who will play her husband. Meanwhile, Taher is taking sword-fighting lessons from action director Nick Powell. He will be seen in many scenes with Kangana. Sharing about his delight on joining the team, Taher told Mumbai Mirror, “I’m very happy to be a part of the film, Kangana is like family.” He further added, “It’s hectic but feels awesome!” It will be a treat to watch Taher in this avatar.
Kangana is currently shooting some climax scenes with Nick Powell. After Sonu Sood's replacement, Zeeshan Ayyub will be seen in the role of Sadashiv Narayan Rao. They are all set to reshoot the sequences with his onscreen wife, Swati Semwal, in the next few days.
