Tahira Kashyap was all set to start her first-ever feature film when she fell ill. The 35-year old was diagnosed with cancer and she took a step back from the project to give her health the first priority. Later on, she recovered from the disease by fighting bravely against all the odds and was all set to resume the shooting of her film.
Madhuri Dixit opted out unceremoniously from Tahira’s proposed feature film and since the project has been in the state of suspension. The sources say that Madhuri walked out of the film because she wanted a larger remuneration than the one agreed on. Ever since Madhuri opted out, the team has been in search of a suitable replacement for her.
Meanwhile, the title-tattle is that Ayushmann Khurrana may produce his wife’s film. A source close to the development revealed, “It seems like the best possible option, considering Tahira Kashyap wants to make her first feature film on her own terms, with no compromises whatsoever.”
The source also mentioned that Ayushmann has resolved to step in as the producer of his wife’s film. The source added, “He has in any case plans to turn producer for his own films. So why not produce his wife’s film?”
When Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife Tahira Kashyap’s feature film Sharmaji Ki Beti was left without a producer, it was Ayushmann who stepped and put his star- power to good use.
The source also said, “He spoke to a couple of his trusted producers, not with the intention of pressurizing them into producing his wife’s script but just to urge them to look at her script. After going through the script and loving it, one of Ayushmann’s producers happily stepped into to produce Sharmaji Ki Beti.”
On the work front, Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Gulabo Sitabo has been released on Amazon Prime pertaining to the lockdown situation in the country. The film also features Amitabh Bachchan in a pivotal role.
