Here’s the reason why Sushant and Parineeti-starrer ‘Takadum’ has been put on back-burner

After ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’, Sushant Singh Rajput and Parineeti Chopra were all set to team up for Homi Adajania’s ‘Takadum’. However, just before a few days of the shoot, the makers decided to put the movie on a back-burner. There were reports that the movie has been put on hold as the story is quite similar to Karan Johar’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. However, recently Homi spoke about why the movie has been stalled.

He stated, “When it (story) got translated from an English set up to Hindi, it seemed like a forced fit as a story in Mumbai. I tried to fix it up then but (that did not work out) now it (film) has gone for rewriting. It’s not shelved right now. It’s still an open working possibility.”

“I was very happy with the initial story. It’s a story based in New York in English and I was trying to put in the Mumbai set up. When we translated it, I felt people like this don’t exist in Mumbai I felt it was forced,” he added.

The director says that everyone who was associated with the film agreed that they should not go ahead right now. Homi said, “We all agreed (on not doing the film). We took a creative decision that let’s not jump into it even though we were close to starting the shoot.” (Also Read: Sushant Singh Rajput finally talks about taking Kriti Sanon for a long drive in his new car)

“It’s ok as I was not happy with the stuff. The actors also graciously agreed as we all wanted to make it (film) the best. So we have to rewrite it and then start,” the filmmaker added.

Well, it looks like fans of Sushant and Parineeti have to wait for some more time before they get to see them on the big screen again. ‘Takadum’ also starred the very talented Irrfan Khan .
