The script was being reworked and the actor had already given his nod to the same. The movie was supposed to be helmed by ‘Lucknow Central’ director Ranjit Tiwari.

Even though Shahid had ok’ed the film, he was still sign the dotted lines. But turns out, the actor has been having his doubts about the same. According to Bollywood Bubble’s exclusive sources, Shahid asked for a whooping amount of Rs. 33 crores of the project. Which is far from what the makers can afford.
