Parineeti Chopra steps away from ‘Life in a Metro’ sequel


Parineeti Chopra has dropped out of the sequel to ‘Life in a Metro’ due to a clash of shooting dates with ‘Kesari’.

Chopra was all set to shoot ‘Jabariya Jodi’, ‘Kesari’ and the ‘Life in a Metro’ sequel back-to-back. However a sudden fire on the sets of ‘Kesari’ had put the project on hold, which is all set to continue shooting now. “The film needs 15 more days of shooting with Akshay (Kumar) and the rest of the cast. And a set has to be prepared for that. We could not do anything during the monsoons because it is an outdoor schedule, and we were waiting for a combination of dates when Akshay and the film’s other actors would be available.”, a source told Sanskriti Media. The new shooting calendar for ‘Kesari’, combined with ‘Jabariya Jodi’, have made it difficult for Chopra to be available for Anurag Basu’s film.

A replacement for Chopra has not been announced yet. The film has an ensemble cast including Abhishek Bachchan. There has been no official announcement on the rest of the actors featured in the film, because of scheduling complications. “It is difficult to lock in on an ensemble cast for a film because you need combination dates that work for all the actors. It is tough because the actors’ calendars are full.”, Basu explained.
