It certainly looks like because the Vicky Donor actor who was part of Abhishek Chaubey's Udta Punjab till recently has now backed off from the project. And we hear Ms Khan probably has something to do with it...
Not too long ago, we told you that Kareena Kapoor Khan is all set to team up with her ex-boyfriend Shahid Kapoor. The ex-lovers will be coming together for Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab which also stars Alia Bhatt. While we all are eager to see the Jab We Met co-stars on the big screen once again, the two aren't actually paired opposite each other in the film. The Singham Returns actress was supposed to share screen space with Ayushmann Khurrana in Chaubey's directorial venture. However, the Hawaizaada actor has now been shown the exit door. While Khurrana's spokesperson has maintained that the B-town hunk is no longer part of the film because of date issues, there is another angle to this whole Ayushmann's exit story.
Reportedly, Saif Ali Khan's wifey is the reason why the Paani Da Rang singer isn't doing Shahid-Alia starrer anymore. Well, Bebo wants to work with STARS and looks like Ayushmann doesn't fall under that category at least for the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actress. We say so because Kareena had most of her scenes with the Nautanki Saala actor in Udta Punjab which wethinks she wasn't happy with as she made it quite clear to the makers that she will only work with stars. That's not all! Mr Khurrana's boyish looks were also a problem for the Begum. A source told a leading tabloid, "Since Bebo isn't paired with Shahid, most of her scenes were with Ayushmann, who looked a little too young. Chaubey and Aayushmann then decided to team up for another project as this one wasn't meant to be."
Now it won't be surprising if this grapevine is indeed true because Bebo is just being Bebo, hai na? It seems after doing away with her 'I-will-only-work-with-my- friends' funda, KKK has now got a new criteria as far as doing a film is concerned. It's okay to have filters and wishlists but its more important to have the rights ones, no peeps? Guess Karisma Kapoor's little sister has forgotten Anurag Kashyap's advice - "You should not ask who is in the film, you should ask what is the film (about).”
As for Ayushmann looking too young, well, even Shahid had a baby face initially but that didn't stop Kareena from working with him, so why so much fuss now?
