A couple of weeks ago, we had informed our readers that Shahid Kapoor was set to team up with director Shashank Khaitan for an action entertainer, titled Yoddha. To be produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Production, the high-profile project also had Disha Patani in the lead role and was expected to go before cameras in the month of January.
However, the latest we hear that things changed drastically over the past few weeks and Shahid Kapoor is no longer headlining Yoddha. The Kabir Singh (2019) actor has reportedly walked out of the film citing creative differences.
Spilling some more beans, a source in the know tells an online publication, “Shahid and the team were having a lot of creative differences over the script. Many feel that Shahid has become extremely brash and arrogant after the success of Kabir Singh. He is currently very picky about what he wants to do. Plus, he had been dilly-dallying on his dates for a while. He had not signed on the dotted line, which is also why KJo could not make the official announcement about the same. But now, it is almost certain that he is no longer doing the film anymore. Now, it needs to be seen if Karan and Shashank get back to convincing him and adhere to his demands or they look for a new actor to star in the film.”
We also hear that Shahid Kapoor, who recently wrapped up his next Jersey, has now switched his dates for Yoddha with his much-talked-about debut digital series. If reports are to be believed, Kapoor and Tamil superstar Vijay Sethupathi will soon kick-start the shoot in Mumbai and Goa. The hit director duo Raj & DK are helming the yet-to-be-titled series.
