Shahid Kapoor’s fees and movie script reason behind the delay in robot rom-com shoot with Kriti Sanon: Report – Times of India

Just days after news broke about Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon‘s first film together, new reports claim that the project has been put on the back burner.

At a time when several Bollywood filmmakers and producers are postponing their films, it seems that even this Shahid starrer has been delayed. Buzz is that the makers pulled the plug on this film after they realized they were overshooting the budget. Shahid, who is known to command a hefty fee for his films, has allegedly hiked up his fees, states Peepingmoon, causing financial strains on the production and increasing its costs.

That’s not all, Shahid was reportedly unhappy with the final draft of the script and has asked for some changes, including the climax scene. As this will take time, the team collectively decided to postpone the production to early 2023.

The rom-com that relies heavily on VFX, is said to be a new take on the romance between a man and a machine. While the concept has been explored many times in Hollywood, the Indian film industry hasn’t seen much of it.
