Last year, a new project was announced by ‘Dhadak’ (2018) director Shashank Khaitan. Titled ‘Mr Lele,’ the movie was going to star Varun Dhawan in the lead role. The film even released the first poster which had Dhawan posing. However in March last year, the film was shelved as the star was not happy with the script and had his doubts about the project.
Now, according to online reports, ‘Mr Lele’ is back in business with Vicky Kaushal now in the lead role, reports Filmfare. The makers have decided to make this film with Kaushal and will soon begin shooting for it soon. The movie is said to be a comedy film with a twist.
Khaitan was due to start work on ‘Yodha’ next, but since Shahid Kapoor walked out of the project, the filmmaker decided to push forward with ‘Mr Lele.’ It is also yet to be confirmed whether Janhvi Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar are also still part of the project as they were initially in talks last year.
