Although Udta Punjab, a project of Abhishek Chaubhey, will bring Shahid Kapoor and his ex Kareena Kapoor Khan together, they are not paired together. Alia Bhatt gets to be Shahid's pair.
Kareena Kapoor was supposed to pair with Ayushmann Khurrana in the film. However, Kareena who is known for her starry tantrums has yet again been blamed for Ayushmann Khurrana's exit from this project.
According to a leading daily a source said that Kareena Kapoor wanted to act only with big stars and added, "Since Bebo isn't paired with Shahid, most of her scenes were with Ayushmann, who looked a little too young. Chaubey and Aayushmann then decided to team up for another project as this one wasn't meant to be."
Ayushmann Khurrana's spokesperson has a different take on this issue. He says the actor left because of date issues.
"He won't be doing Udta Punjab as he starts promoting his two upcoming releases, Hawaizaada and Dum Laga Ke Haisha. He has also committed to Shoojit Sircar's Agra Ka Dabra and a yet-to-be-announced project," his spokesperson said.
Well, we all know Kareena Kapoor is known for her tantrums and arrogant attitude in the industry, we never know for sure if Ayushmann was taken out of this project because of her or the date issues was the real reason!
Only Kareena can clarify...
