Deepika's BACK PROBLEM Resurfaces & Irrfan Goes Down With JAUNDICE; Vishal's Film POSTPONED

Vishal Bhardwaj has been compelled to push back his forthcoming co-production with KriArj Entertainment (Prernaa Arora & Arjun N Kapoor) by few months.

KriArj has responded positively to Vishal's text:

The film's leading lady, Deepika Padukone, had a tough time dancing to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's tunes in Padmaavat; unfortunately, seems that the the lady is in pain and discomfort as of now and has been advised to take it a bit slow.

Irrfan Khan, her Piku co-star, who will play the male lead in the film, on the other hand, is down with jaundice and advised adequate rest and diet precautions.

The film in question was originally supposed to be directed by Vishal's assistant Honey Trehan, but later Vishal took over the reins. In a press release issued on Dec 21, 2017, Vishal had said, "Due to different artistic visions of the film, Trehan and I jointly came to the decision that it would be best if I took over as director and saw it through to the end."

In the same note, Honey had said, "Owing to our differences in creative understanding, we have mutually and amicably decided that it would be best for our film if Vishal sir took over as director."

The information imparted also contained that 'Trehan will direct another project in the near future to be produced by VB Pictures and KriArj. Vishal's film is scheduled to begin shooting from February end'.

Vishal ended the post reiterating the fact that his Deepikas-Irrfan film is still untitled and not based on Rahima Khan/Sapna Didi’s life. Earlier, it was being said that the film has been titled Sapna Didi.

Anyway, now let's wait and watch when exactly the film goes on floors.

We wish Deepika and Irrfan a speedy recovery.
