On being contacted, Javed says, “I couldn’t do the film as they wanted songs a bit sooner than I could give them. And I was in Delhi, busy with other commitments. It was a mutual decision that I should opt out.”
Ask him if the Farhan-Abhishek feud was the reason behind him not doing the film, and he says, “No, I don’t think so. To the best of my knowledge, they don’t have a problem. I would work with Abhishek if an opportunity came along.”
Though it seems that both Javed and Abhishek mutually decided not to work together, the fact that Abhishek got UTV Motion Pictures as the producer for this film, and not Excel as earlier reported can’t be entirely ignored.
