Jab We Wait: Shahid Kapoor, Imtiaz Ali reunion delayed; producers reportedly find script too 'edgy'
The Shahid Kapoor-starrer, which director Imtiaz Ali described as 'more of a human story than a travel story', has been put on the backburner.
Shahid Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali, the team of Jab We Met, was supposed to start shooting for their next project which was reportedly more of a human story than a travel story, but recent updates claim that the film has been shelved for an uncertain period of time.
Mumbai Mirror reports that there have been creative differences between the director-script writers and producers. While the creative team came up with an edgy drama, the investors are not sure to put money in an experiment as big as this. The report even said that the director and actor recently met in Mumbai and decided to keep the script at a bay for the time being.
The same report states that Imtiaz would return with a new story and script. His spokesperson stayed neutral and said if there is any final decision made about the film, the director will make an official announcement.
Imtiaz, who was initially tight-lipped about the project, had later told PTI,"It is not a travel-oriented film, which is a good thing for me, it will be different for me... Shahid and I have met and spoken about it but it's not as if we have decided and signed anything at all. There's nothing officially planned about it."
Shahid, who is currently working on Batti Gul Meter Chalu, is also reading other scripts and is yet to finalise his next venture.

Chhalaang leaps from one topic to another before finally redeeming itself with the panache and emotional intensity of the sports sequences in the second half.
While Inside Pixar give us a glimpse of the process, it never quite becomes the definitive documentary on a company that has truly made some clutter-breaking animation films in the last 25 years.
