On December 25, we told you that Nikkhil Advani’s
film starring John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee has a hazy future due to lack of
a funder. After
Bhushan Kumar’s dismissing off the venture, the director approached the
T-Series’ head honcho’s former employee Ajay Kapoor who parted ways with
Bhushan rather acrimoniously. We told you that Ajay is however yet to embrace
Nikkhil on it.
Now, looks like the film in question which is supposed to be directed by Milap Zaveri. is facing another roadblock. SpotboyE.com has it that the makers approached Tamannaah Bhatia to essay the lead role in the project. However, she declined the offer. The team then approached Ashutosh Gowariker's discovery Pooja Hegde (who played Hrithik Roshan's leading lady in Mohenjo Daro) and things seem to be ambiguous on that front as well.
Says a source, “Pooja is in talks with Milap. However, she is yet to give her final word.”
If Pooja too doesn’t come on-board, Team Advani will have to spend still more time looking for the heroine of the film, which in turn will add to their woes of getting a producer. Word is, the hunt for the leading lady has been going on since quite some time- but in vain.
Ajay Kapoor And Bhushan Kumar
In case Pooja doesn’t sign the film, this would be the second time she has turned a project down. Earlier, the actress had said ‘No’ to Faruk Kabir’s next opposite Sooraj Pancholi.
Well, let’s wait and watch to find out which heroine eventually signs on the dotted line.
