Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan’s upcoming film Kedarnath helmed by Abhishek Kapoor seems to be facing issues again. The film has already faced a lot of issues in the past due to creative differences between the director and the producers KriArj Entertainment. Now there comes news that the director and the production house have parted ways.
A source revealed, “KriArj Entertainment and T-Series decided to come onboard since they believed in the film and in Abhishek Kapoor’s vision. However, as Kedarnath unfolded, several issues pertaining the dates of the talent, prep time and delays in the film’s delivery began cropping up. Abhishek replaced several of the crew members and technicians at the very last minute. Despite investing a huge sum of funding into the project, Kedarnath was going way over budget owing to Abhishek’s constant and unreasonable demands. He not only delayed the shoot of the film by six months but also majorly interfered in the film’s financial planning and overall business workings. Abhishek also demanded that a higher price be quoted for the music rights and this despite T-Series being music moguls and being the best in the music industry”.
The source added, “Deciding a film’s release date should be the producers’ call since they are the one’s investing huge sums into the project. However, Abhishek interfered in that as well and went on to announce a release date on Twitter without consulting KriArj Entertainment who were against releasing the film on the same date as Zero. There were also rumors of Abhishek Kapoor not allowing KriArj to sign Sara Ali Khan for another film they were in talks for and pressurized the studio to drop the film. It came to a point where the makers refused to put up with Kapoor’s arm-twisting. For now, Kedarnath is on hold until everything is clear on papers.”
Well looks like Sara Ali Khan’s debut film is in serious trouble.
