Nayanthara is all set to make her Bollywood debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in the upcoming yet-untitled Hindi directorial debut of filmmaker Atlee. However, now, according to the recent reports, the South actress has QUIT the Shah Rukh Khan-Atlee film.
According to Bollywood Life, Nayanthara had allotted her October dates for Atlee’s upcoming film with Shah Rukh Khan. However, the actor will not join the shoot as his son Aryan Khan is currently arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in a cruise ship drug case.
“The film’s schedule was underway when Shah Rukh had to make an exit and attend to the issues in his personal life. He hasn’t got the opportunity to resume and there lies uncertainty over when he will be able to,” said the report.
