After facing a series of issues, Shree Narayan Singh’s upcoming film Batti Gul Meter Chalu resumed its shooting today, but with a change in its production house. Yes, the film that stars Shraddha Kapoor, Yami Gautam and Shahid Kapoor has gone from KriArj Entertainment’s hands to T-Series. Not only Batti Gul Meter Chalu, Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series has also taken over KriArj Entertainment’s Fanne Khan, which stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao.
“The modalities have been worked out and the remaining remuneration of the actors will be paid. Bhushan has all the rights now and will be taking the film forward. There’s only one song left to be shot in Fanne Khan which will be filmed in the first week of June,” says a source.
T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar also confirmed the development. “Yes, I’m the sole producer on Batti Gul Meter Chalu, Shree Narayan along with his partner Nitin Chandrachud are the stakeholders. Prernaa is also no longer a part of Fanne Khan because of all the trouble happening around her. She wants to solve all these problems first before she gets back to making movies. I will now be producing both these films with my partners on it,” he said.
Earlier, Prernaa Arora and Arjun N Kapoor’s KriArj Entertainment had backed out of Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath. That film was later taken over by Ronnie Screwvala’s production house, RSVP.
