Shahid opts out of Imtiaz's film; Rajkummar steps in
Rajkummar replaces Shahid in Imtiaz Ali's next
The untitled film is apparently a two-hero project
A media report stated, "Shahid was very excited about this film. He even gave a look test for this in November last year. But things didn't fall into place post that."
"There were some issues with the script and both Shahid and Imtiaz decided to put the movie on the backburner. However, now Shahid has completely pulled out of the movie," it added.
No hard feelings between the actor and the director
"Shahid told Imtiaz that he cannot do it and has taken up other projects too. Imtiaz has accepted this decision and there are no ill feelings between the actor and the director," the report further said.
