Based on the novel by the same name, Sonam Kapoor’s next project ‘Battle for Bittora’ put on hold.
The film adaptation of Anuja Chauhan’s novel ‘Battle of Bittora’ is to be directed by Shashanka Ghosh. The movie is supposed to be romantic comedy featuring the ‘Khubsoorat’ jodi Sonam Kapoor and Fawad Khan. Sadly, Sonam Kapoor‘s next project ‘Battle for Bittora’ has been put on hold citing some date issues.
When the director Ghosh was contacted by PTI about the status of the movie, he said “It is not shelved. The film is on hold due to date issues. It will happen but not immediately. It’s a good story and we will make it. Sonam will be part of the film. The rest of the actors lets see.”
Reportedly, Sonam Kapoor has not been able to work on this project because she started shooting for ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ and then for ‘Neerja’. On the other hand, Fawad Khan has apparently walked out of the movie but there are no confirmations as of yet.
The film will be produced by Sonam’s sister Rhea Kapoor under the banner Anil Kapoor Films Company and Sonam will play an animation expert who will find herself contesting elections in Bittora opposite an ex-royal.
Since the project is still under wraps, Sonam Kapoor will probably start working on ‘Veeray Di Shaadi’, a chick-flick featuring Kareena Kapoor Khan in lead role, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania in supporting roles.
