Has Balaji stepped out of production of ‘Veere Di Wedding’?
Balaji Motion Pictures’ latest flick ‘A Flying Jatt‘ did not have an impressing impact at the box-office and production house had to ran into huge losses.
This is why, Sameer Nair, Group CEO of Balaji Telefilms, has now decided to be more cautious when it comes to their movies and will only select projects after a lot of thinking, henceforth. The next flick on Balaji’s plate is ‘Veere Di Wedding’ starring Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania. The movie was said to be produced by Ekta Kapoor along with Sonam’s sister, Rhea Kapoor.
But rumours are now abuzz that Balaji may back out of the project. This has obviously worried the Kapoor family. According to an Entertainment portal, Sonam and Rhea’s father, Anil Kapoor recently visited Eros International and asked them to co-produce the chick flick along with his banner Anil Kapoor Films Company.
However, one hears that even Eros wasn’t keen to produce the film.
A source close to the development says, “The studio formula is collapsing. At a time like this, it won’t be easy to find a producer. So a few months’ delay is inevitable for Veere Di Wedding.”
But an even major problem is that the Kapoor family is running out of time as Kareena is expecting her first child in December and the film has to shoot a few sequences before she goes on her maternity break.
We wonder what the fate of the film will be. Will Anil manage to rope in a new producer or convince Balaji to came back?
