Just recently BizAsiaLive.com reported that Imtiaz Ali’s next, starring Shahid Kapoor, could see the introduction of a new actress. However, it seems the film has now hit a roadblock.

According to Mumbai Mirror, the film’s script hasn’t been approved by its producers. A source revealed, “The script was a little edgy and even though Shahid loved it, the producers approached were somewhat skeptical about its experimental nature. Shahid and Imtiaz met recently and have decided to keep this fi lm on the backburner for now”.

Kapoor was meant to begin the project after completing ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’. However, with this delay, it seems the film will not take off as planned. The source continued, “Imtiaz and Shahid may return to this project next year or maybe later”.

A spokesperson for the filmmaker said, “Imtiaz hasn’t made an official announcement about his next film or its cast. When he is ready to do so he will make the requisite announcement”.
