Kareena Kapoor to lose another project after Shuddhi
While buzz is that the film has been aborted, Mirror has learnt that Excel Entertainment, one of the three co-producers, has withdrawn from the project.
According to a source close to the development, Farhan loved the script and wanted the film to roll by March 30. But despite Excel’s best efforts, Dev could not start the film on time.
While the production house’s withdrawal is bad news for Dev, it will also affect Kareena’s dates diary. After reports that she has been replaced by Deepika Padukone in Shuddhi, this could be another plum project out of her kitty.
When contacted, Excel Entertainment’s head honcho Ritesh Sidhwani confirmed the news saying, “Yes, we are no longer producing Dev’s film. We wanted to start last month but he wasn’t ready. Now, Farhan (his partner in Excel Entertainment) too is busy with three back-to-back films— Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do, Bejoy Nambiar’s next being produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rock On 2—so where is the time?”
