About a month ago, Tiger Shroff announced his reunion with Dharma Productions, three years after Student Of The Year, for an action drama titled Screw Dheela. The film, co-produced and directed by Shashank Khaitan, was announced with a quirky video that explored the action skills of Tiger while also giving a glimpse into the character he plays in the film. From the looks of it, it seems like Tiger’s character has a dual personality, while one of them is a nerd, the other one is a full on action hero.

The film became a much-awaited project soon after its announcement, thus, it was a little shocker for the fans when recently reports started coming in that the Tiger Shroff-starrer has been shelved. After choosing not to respond to the rumours for a while, the makers at Dharma Productions have finally issued a statement, clarifying the status of the film.

The statement said, “Dharma Productions and Tiger Shroff share an incredible relationship. Apart from Screw Dheela, Tiger Shroff is to collaborate with Dharma Productions for another massive action film. Screw Dheela is delayed due to date issues, shoot to commence later next year.”

According to reports, Screw Dheela is to star Rashmika Mandanna opposite Tiger in the film. On the other front, Tiger has many projects in the pipeline in different stages of production. He was seen in Heropanti 2 earlier this year, and apart from Screw Sheela, he has Ganapath Part 1 with Kriti Sanon and Bade Miyan Chote Miyan with Akshay Kumar.
