Ever since it was announced that Shahid Kapoor was going to work with Imtiaz Ali again, fans were super excited about this collaboration. After delivering a hit like Jab We Met in 2007, the audience was expecting something similar after 11 years. But soon, fans were disappointed after news about Sasha walking out from the project started doing the rounds. While it did leave us heartbroken, in a recent interview Imtiaz revealed that no project starring Shahid was on the cards.
I never announced a film. I never said I am making a film. I never said I am working with Shahid Kapoor. So now when people ask me that the film is not happening, I reply, ‘Which film?’ I never said it. Jisne bola usko bolo (Go talk to the person who spoke about it). There’s no truth to it.
He further added,
There will be more news like this because the fact is, I keep meeting actors because some of them I have worked with and there are going to be friendships, we meet, there is always going to be some speculation…
Imitaz also said that currently, he has two screenplays ready.
I have developed two screenplays. I have turned producer so I have to keep some material ready… The only asset that you have in this work is a script. So once these four scripts are ready, depending upon the availability of the suitable actors, I will start working.
We guess we’ll have to wait for a little longer to see the actor-director collaborate.
