The 31-year-old will be seen donning the khaki uniform for "A Wednesday" director Neeraj Pandey's next project. Earlier, he played an Indian Air Force officer in "Mausam".
Shanti Sivaram, who handles Shahid's work on behalf of Bling! Entertainment Solutions, confirmed the news. "Yes, Shahid Kapoor will be seen in (khaki) uniform for the first time."
Shahid, who has so far played a business tycoon, a teacher and a bookie, has already started preparations to get into the skin of his character.
