|There have been talks about Freida Pinto’s debut Bollywood film with Anurag Kashyap and co. under their banner Phantom Films starring Raj Kumar Yadav opposite her. But the movie is reportedly stalled due to the producers.
It’s being said that the film’s producers, Navdeep Singh and others, are no more willing to back Freida Pinto’s ticket to Bollywood, and the reason for their decision is not yet known. Things went awry even as the yet-untitled film was supposed to go on floors this March 25.
As a source tells a tabloid, “The film was to be shot in and around Gurgaon. However, the corporate house, which was scheduled to back the project, is no longer attached to the film.”
The sources further claim that the original producers, Anurag Kashyap, Madhu Mantena, Vikas Bahl and Vikramaditya Motwane, are now in a fix and are waiting for a corporate house to back their film before it goes on the floors.
According to other sources, the makers are now stating that the film will go on the floors only by the middle of this year. But it’s possible only when a major corporate house comes into the picture, and joins hands with them.
While talking to the tabloid, producer Vikas Bahl, from Phantom, said that movie will go on the floors by mid this year.
So for now, the production of Freida Pinto’s Bollywood debut stands still.
