Revealed: Why Tiger Shroff And Rashmika Mandanna Starrer Screw Dheela Put On Hold

Karan Johar’s next film Screw Dheela was put on the back burner for a year but the reason has been revealed

Karan Johar’s next film Screw Dheela was put on the back burner for a year. It was recently reported that the film starring Tiger Shroff and Rashmikka Mandanna would be halted for another year. Last month the collaboration of the two stars was announced with a high-octane and action-packed teaser. Now the real reason for shelving the movie has been revealed. 

Earlier, when Karan Johar, who is producing the film, announced to halt the film the cause was unknown. We have learned the actual grounds for keeping the next Tiger Shroff film on hold. Well, this is not the only Karan Johar film put on the back burner, other films adding to the list are Takht, Dostana 2, and Ranbhoomi.

According to a source, Tiger Shroff demanded Rs. 35 crores, and when the film landed in the market for sale the makers couldn’t manage to get viable buyers at that asking price. “In today’s world, actors charging such big bucks makes a film financially unviable. Profit sharing is the way to go. When Karan went to Tiger to express his concern, the actor didn’t agree to lower the price. Karan was keen to get Tiger on board for a sum around the Rs. 20 crore mark, but Tiger and his team stuck to Rs. 35 crores. Their idea was – one failure can’t impact his positioning to this extent.”

The source added, “The budget of Screw Dheela was falling in the range of Rs. 140 crores, and that was without taking into account the print and publicity costs. Hence, after all the attempts to salvage the scenario, Dharma Productions finally decided to shelve the film for the time being. If the market improves, the film will start next year.”

Screw Dheela is directed by Shashank Khaitan and produced by Karan Johar under the banner of Dharma Productions. The film will star Heropanti actor Tiger Shroff and South actress Pushpa fame Rashmika Mandanna in lead roles.
