Varun Dhawan was supposed to be seen in Shashank Khaitan’s directorial ‘Mr. Lele’. But just before the coronavirus pandemic, the movie was shelved. On stalling the film, Shashank said that it is a ‘blessing in disguise’.
He told Mid-Day, “As per our original plan, we were supposed to start filming on March 13. The (suspension of shoots) was announced on March 15. So, the stalling of our film was a blessing in disguise; otherwise, we would have ended up spending a lot more on the pre-production.”
On why the film was stalled, Shashank said, “We were not able to form a flow for the shoot. It was a small film that was to be based in Mumbai, but things were not falling in place. I kept feeling that something is not right. Since Karan [Johar, producer], Varun and I collectively felt it, we decided to hold off the project for the time being.”
It was in March, Shashank announced stalling the movie. Taking to his Twitter handle, he wrote, “Hi Guys, here is an update on Mr. Lele. Karan, Varun and I have mutually decided to postpone the shooting of the film. Its a script we all love and am sure will revisit soon. But scheduling the film was turning out to be very tough, as the film has a solid ensemble cast and the dates were just not falling into place.”
