Actor Kartik Aaryan was in the news recently when he exited Dostana 2 and all the rumors surrounding it. However, the actor now has multiple big films in his kitty and one of them is Freddie.
While filmmaker Ajay Bahl was slated to direct Freddie but he has now backed out due to date clash with Taapsee Pannu's film Blurr.
Talking about it with ETimes, Bahl said, “The makers of the film wanted to start shooting next month and Kartik's dates and my unavailability during those dates was the reason things didn’t materialize. I am shooting ‘Blurr’ with Taapsee till early September, it was mutually decided between me and Jay Shewakramani, the producer and also a friend, that he should go ahead with the project. I wish good luck and happy times to the team.”
Incidentally, Freddie is the same film that Ajay Bahl was directing when Red Chillies Entertainment was to co-produce it. Although one does not the real reason for what conspired the project did not materialise with them, the same project was taken to Ekta Kapoor who is now producing it and is now being directed by Shashank Ghosh. Bahl does not know the real reason with Red Chillies but said that there is no bad blood at all. The script has been written by Parvez Shaikh and Bahl too has contributed to it.
