Homi Adajania announced last year that Parineeti Chopra and Sushant Singh Rajput would be reuniting for ‘Takadum’. The film, which would also star Irrfan Khan, was supposed to go on the floors in October. However, nothing has been said of the film since. Adajania has opened up about the project and the delay.
According to TOI, Adajania said, “When it (story) got translated from an English set up to Hindi, it seemed like a forced fit as a story in Mumbai. I tried to fix it up then but (that did not work out) now it (film) has gone for rewriting. It’s not shelved right now. It’s still an open working possibility”.
He went on to add that the story needs work, “I was very happy with the initial story. It’s a story based in New York in English and I was trying to put in the Mumbai set up. When we translated it, I felt people like this don’t exist in Mumbai I felt it was forced”.
“We all agreed (on not doing the film). We took a creative decision that let’s not jump into it even though we were close to starting the shoot. It’s ok as I was not happy with the stuff. The actors also graciously agreed as we all wanted to make it (film) the best. So we have to rewrite it and then start,” he concluded.
Chopra will be seen in ‘Golmaal Again’ and ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ next whereas Singh Rajput has a number of projects upcoming including ‘Raabta’. Khan will be seen next in ‘Hindi Medium’.
