Recently, there were reports that screenwriter and director Milap Zaveri was planning an action-thriller film with John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee. While Zaveri was about to direct the untitled movie, Nikhil Advani and Bhushan Kumar were supposed to come onboard to bankroll it.
However, if latest reports are to be believed, the project has hit the roadblock. Reportedly, producer Bhushan Kumar has shown no interest in the project and thus it is on the verge of getting shelved.
According to an entertainment website, T-series has a three-film deal with Nikhil Advani but Bhushan Kumar is not keen on including this movie in that. The portal quoted Kumar saying, “I have yet to take a decision.”
Talking about the movie, Nikhil had previously said, “It’s a very tight script which revolves around a cop and a murderer. I can’t reveal who between the two is playing what but they are both very powerful characters and a dark thriller is a genre I haven’t explored before. We are looking forward to the shoot.”
While no one knows the exact reason behind Bhushan Kumar saying no to the project, reports claim that Kumar rejected it because Nikhil wanted Rs. 35 crore as the budget.
