Actor Varun Dhawan tweeted his reaction after Shashank Khaitan confirmed that ‘Mr Lele’ has been put on backburner.
Shashank Khaitan cleared that he would work with Varun Dhawan soon, either on Mr Lele or another project.
Director Shashank Khaitan, who was for a long while expected to work with Varun Dhawan in ‘Mr. Lele’ as his next project, has confirmed that the movie has been put on the backburner.
Shashank made a tweet in this regard and the actor Varun Dhawan himself responded to the same.
Shashank also shared the reason that prompted him to arrive at this decision. As per him it was getting difficult to shoot for ‘Mr Lele’ since the whole cast could not give their time to the movie. Whilst revealing that shooting of the film stands postponed, Shashank was quite clear that if not Mr. Lele, he would work with Varun again on another project.
Below is his statement,
“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. I am very sure Varun and I will collaborate very soon, either on Mr. Lele itself or on something new, as collaborating with him has always been the most joyful and fulfilling experience in my life. Have a great day guys, lots of love.”
Varun Dhawan was quick to respond to Shashank’s tweet.
“Nobody asks about thoughts or path, everybody cares about the goal. Soon….”
