Karan Johar and Ekta Kapoor are joining hands for the first time with Kareena Kapoor Khan and Emraan Hashmi starrer ‘Badtameez Dil’. However, it seems the project is now being postponed.
Hashmi had allocated dates for the movie but with the delay has decided to prioritise Kunal Deshmukh’s next, ‘Shaatir’, instead. A source told TOI, “Emraan was gearing up to shoot for Badtameez Dil but due to certain circumstances, the film is not starting as planned at the end of September. This left Emraan free.”
Tanuj Garg, CEO, Balaji Motion Pictures, stated, “The script is still being worked on… we will still release next year as per plan. ” Deshmukh has started on ‘Shaatir’ earlier than originally planned due to the availability of Hashmi.
Deshmukh has always worked with Hashmi as hero and no doubt this surprise change of schedule is something he wants to take full advantage of.
