Confirmed! Hrithik Roshan's film with Sara Ali Khan is NOT shelved – The Karan Johar film hasn't been shelved, though Sara has apparently walked out of the project…
There was buzz about Karan Johar who was to bankroll a project with Karan Malhotra (of Agneepath fame) as the director. Hrithik Roshan and Malhotra even met a couple of times over the last few weeks, but a deal is yet to be cracked.
According to reports, Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara was expected to play Hrithik's leading lady, and had walked out of the project, too, leaving it shelved. However, a source, close to Hrithik, reveals. “Hrithik hasn't signed the film to begin with, so how can he walk out of it? Some reports even claimed that the deal fell through because he demanded a hefty fee. But the industry knows that a script matters to him the most."
Hrithik, reveals, “We (Karan Malhotra and I) have spoken about it, but it's not official. I haven't signed the film yet." While Malhotra adds, “I'd like to make it clear that the film hasn't been shelved. It's too early to say anything else."
