Latest reports suggest that Devgn has opted out. But according to sources close to the project, this is untrue.
The casting game around director Luv Ranjan’s next film has been going on for quite some time. There is a righteous school of thought that believes Ranjan’s cast for his next film —Ajay Devgn, Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone — has had second thoughts since he has been accused in the #MeToo movement.
Latest reports suggest that Devgn has opted out. But according to sources close to the project, this is untrue. “Ajay is very much a part of Luv Ranjan’s next. They worked well together in De De Pyaar De and they are most eager about their next collaboration. The only problem is with the #MeToo accusation. But then, the accuser has taken no legal recourse, and the film industry has taken a decision to boycott only those who are proven guilty,” says the source.
Earlier, Deepika Padukone also reportedly opted out of Luv Ranjan’s film, but that turned out to be a false alarm.
