The news of Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone being paired again spread like a wildfire. The film which is said to be helmed by Luv Ranjan who is known for films like the Pyaar Ka Punchnama franchise, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, De De Pyar De has been the talk of the town for days. The yet-untitled film was said supposed to star Ajay Devgn, Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. But their fans were disappointed when the actress walked out of the film stating that she wouldn't want to work with a person who has been accused of sexual misconduct.
And now, new reports have surfaced on the development of the film. A report in Mid-Day read that the Ajay Devgn-Ranbir Kapoor starrer might be delayed yet again. And it's because of a major reason. As per the report, the story of Luv Ranjan’s film is yet in the scripting stage. Also, the lead stars Ajay and Ranbir are busy with their respective projects. While Ranbir is caught up with Ayan Mukherjee's Brahmastra and on the other hand, Ajay is prepping for the historical biopic Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior.
"According to the original plan, the film was expected to kick off this year. But the script is yet to be locked. Couple that with the lead actors' choc-a-block schedule and the film has been pushed by a year now.” A source revealed to Mid-Day.
“Luv will utilise the time to finish the final draft and take it on floors by mid-2020. There is no truth to the allegations that the film has been shelved owing to his #MeToo complaint. Ranjan came clean on the matter and apologised for his said misconduct, citing that it was never his intent," the source further added.
