Shahid in, Sonam out
Shahid Kapoor’s single status seems to be working in his favour, especially for his professional life. The actor was slated to work on his first Dharma Production in 2005 in Karan Johar’s Kaal. But due to the cold war between his then girlfriend Kareena Kapoor and KJo, Shahid reportedly opted out of the venture.
A source from the production house revealed that Shahid has been roped in to replace Imran Khan in Punit Malhotra’s next.
According to the source, Imran opted out of the film as he wanted to focus on Vishal Bhardwaj’s Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola. And so, Karan Johar and Malhotra decided to cast Shahid in the film.
The source added, “Previously, Shahid was supposed to be a part of Soham Singh's directorial venture, Kaal. But at the last moment, he backed out of the film. Shahid was with Kareena back then and since she had a tiff with KJo about his decision to cast Preity Zinta in Kal Ho Na Ho instead of her, Shahid opted out for the sake of solidarity. And since then, he hadn't been offered a role in a Dharma Production.”
Despite repeated attempts, Shahid Kapoor remained unavailable for comments.
