Is this the reason behind Arjun Kapoor turning down ‘Life In A Metro’ sequel?
Arjun Kapoor is currently on a roll as the actor has multiple films lined up for this as well as next year. The actor has two films with his ‘Ishqzaade’ co-star Parineeti Chopra and they are ‘Namaste England’ and ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’.
Apart from these two, he has ‘India’s Most Wanted’ which is set to release next year and period drama ‘Panipat’ along with Kriti Sanon and Sanjay Dutt. With four films in his kitty, according to the latest buzz, the actor was offered the sequel of hit 2007 film, ‘Life In A Metro’. Anurag Basu, who has directed the film was keen on casting Arjun and Kareena in lead roles.
However, a report in DNA stated that the actor has turned down this offer. The industry source told DNA that the actor couldn’t take it up because the dates required for the filmmakers next were clashing with those already committed to ‘Panipat’. So Arjun, who’ll be venturing into the Maratha historical, is said to have politely declined Basu’s movie.
The actor was last seen in ‘Half Girlfriend’ which was an average affair at the box office. He also had a cameo in Harshvardhan Kapoor‘s ‘Bhavesh Joshi’ which was a flop at the ticket windows.
