New Delhi: After a couple of false starts, producer-director Sajid Nadiadwala has zeroed in on Shahid Kapoor for the lead in the Bolly remake of Magadheera.



The Kick maker had acquired the rights to remake the 2009 Telugu blockbuster starring Ram Charan Teja three years ago, but the project failed to take off because no leading Bolly star was willing to take on the role that requires immense physical and mental preparation.

While Ranveer Singh dropped out after being signed on, Ranbir Kapoor refused the role at the outset. Made in Tollywood as the Dev starrer Yoddha, the Bolly remake goes on the floors in end-2015.
