Mr Lele: Varun Dhawan & Janhvi Kapoor starrer put on hold?
Varun Dhawan and Shashank Khaitan's Mr Lele put on back burner. Read on to know details
Bollywood heartthrob Varun Dhawan was all set to collaborate with Dulhania series director Shashank Khaitan for his next. The movie was to star Janhvi Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar in pivotal roles. But seems like Varun Dhawan fans are in for a disappointment. The movie has been put on hold.
As reported by PuneMirror, “Shashank had begun work on the pre-production, but the actor’s dates aren’t aligning. A new plan for Mr. Lele will be worked out at a later stage.”
Shashank Khaitan took to Twitter and wrote, “Hi guys, here is an update on Mr. Lele. Karan, Varun and I have mutually decided to postpone the shooting of this film. It’s a script we all love and am sure will revisit soon. But scheduling the film was turning out to be very tough, as the film has a very solid ensemble cast and the dates were just not falling into place.”
