Actor, Sushant Singh Rajput, who made his Bollywood debut in Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Kai Po Che!’, has walked out of the director’s second movie ‘Fitoor’ due to date problems.
The actor, who recently signed Shekhar Kapur’s ambitious project ‘Paani’, had requested Abhishek Kapoor to postpone dates of ‘Fitoor’ but the director refused to do so.
“Sushant wanted to do Shekar Kapur's ‘Paani’ as well as Abhishek's ‘Fitoor’. Sushant requested Abhishek to postpone the date of his film ‘Fitoor’ and has perhaps disappointed him. So now Sushant is no more part of ‘Fitoor’ and Abhishek is hunting for the leading actor for his film,” said a source to IANS.
‘Fitoor’ is a movie adaptation of Charles Dickens classic novel ‘Great Expectations’. The makers have signed Katrina Kaif as the leading lady for the movie. The film will be produced by Ekta Kapoor.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s spokesperson confirmed the news in a statement.
“Sushant will not be doing ‘Fitoor’. The film, for which he had allotted dates this year and kept himself free, has shifted from its original October 2013 schedule to March 2014 and now to July 2014. It now clashes with his dates allotted for ‘Paani’ due to which he had to let it go. He hopes to collaborate with Abhishek on some project in the future," the statement read.
