Things are not going well with Prernaa Arora’s KriArj Entertainment, and it has affected all her upcoming movies. A few weeks ago, her film, ‘Kedarnath’ was in legal trouble, and now, news has it that Prernaa’s team has stepped out of ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ as well.

Actor Shahid Kapoor has finished shooting few schedules of the film, and since last month, it was put on a halt. But now, T-Series’ head honcho Bhushan Kumar has come on-board and taken over the baton from KriArj. Hence, ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ will now be jointly bankrolled by Kumar, along with Shree Narayan Singh (director) and Nitin Chandrachud.

In an interview with DNA, Bhushan Kumar said, “I will now produce Batti Gul Meter Chalu (along with Shree Narayan Singh and Nitin Chandrachud). We want to ensure that the film is shot as per the locked schedule. Director Shree Narayan is set to complete BGMC as planned. BGMC shooting resumes on Friday (May 18, 2018).”

The film also stars Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam in pivotal roles and reportedly, it will get wrapped up in next 45-60 days.
