The makers of Shahid Kapoor-starrer Farzi are reportedly roping in some other actor to play the lead in the upcoming film as the Haider star has date issues.

"We are r­escheduling dates of the film. But things look tough right now as Shahid has ­back-to-back films lined up —


and Udta Punjab. So he will be busy promoting them as well," a source said.

Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are working on their next Shandaar.

"It is premature to say ­anything right now. May be in a week or so things will be clear," the source added.

However, rumours are doing the rounds that the 2 States star

Arjun Kapoor

may replace Shahid in the film, which will be directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK. "We are thinking of other actors. We are considering Arjun. But nothing has been finalised yet," the source said.

The film was expected to go on floors in December last year but that did not ­materialise. Then

Shahid Kapoor

began shooting for another film with actor Alia Bhatt in London and returned to India in February to start filming Abhishek Chaubey’s ­upcoming film.

In fact, Shahid is so caught up with work that the actor, who is getting married to Delhi girl Mira Rajput next month, will reportedly skip his honeymoon and resume work right after the wedding.
