Filmmaker Shree Narayan Singh recently shared that his upcoming production ‘Jasmine’ would not be made in the near future, however aspiring director duo Siddharth Singh and Garima Wahal have suggested otherwise. The director duo has quashed rumours that ‘Jasmine’ is on the backburner.
Rumours of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan being considered for the film, based on a surrogate mother’s bond with her child, hit the headlines earlier this year. However, the director had reportedly said that “things were going downhill from the start” as far as the film was concerned.
Mid-day reports Wahal saying recently that, “No official contract or agreement for Jasmine has been drafted with anyone. So, no one can announce that the film has been shelved. The film is definitely happening.” With Shree Narayan Singh’s other commitments keeping him busy, Wahal went onto say that they had reached out to a “top production house”.
Having written the script for the forthcoming ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’, Wahal affirmed that this glitch didn’t affect the director duo’s equation with the filmmaker. “We had told him that we will [create] Jasmine ourselves, and that he need not worry. Shree sir was excited about this story. He would have liked to produce it. But, this is the right time to tell this story independently.”
Sonakshi Sinha and Kiara Advani are also reportedly amongst the actors who have been approached for the film.
