Diljit Dosanjh Backs Out Of Shaad Ali's Film On Male Pregnancy Due To 'Creative Differences'!

By: Gurwinder | September 2, 2020

Diljit Dosanjh was all set to work with Shaad Ali after Soorma in an upcoming untitled film opposite Yami Gautam. The film was based on the subject of male pregnancy. Though the director was pretty excited for the shoot and had already started the pre-production of the film, a piece of news confirms that Diljit has walked out of the film! 

The shooting of the film was supposed to start off in mid-October in Nainital and seeing the sensitivity of the topic, Diljit wanted it to be treated in a certain way which didn't really go down well with the director and it was due to the creative differences between the actor and the director, the former chose to walk off the project.

Earlier, after listening to the film's narration, Diljit was pretty excited about the subject and the film was announced immediately but when he read the final draft of the script, he wasn't happy with the way it had shaped up. The actor felt Shaad's narrative would face backlash from religious bodies. It was not how he had envisioned the project and hence decided to back out of it, said reports.

Dosanjh's exit at this point has left the makers baffled and the team is still trying to persuade him but seems like it is unlikely that he will do this film anymore. Yami Gautam is believed to be still committed to the film but it's yet unclear if the film will even happen now.

When we had shared the news about Diljit doing a film on male pregnancy, the response from the people, especially the overseas audience, was pretty heated up. While some thought "If so it's bloody sickening.... vomit big time", others made jokes by saying Who's going to impregnate him? Karan Johar? There were also those who said "Diljit is gonna get big hatred 4 this. He knows it wrong but still doing it. Stupid!".

So for now, all those who were pretty excited about this project need to hold their horses. Now Shaad Ali is ready to dive into the preparation of his next web-series which is the adaptation of Netflix's popular French series, Call My Agent for Applause Entertainment and Banijay Asia. The Hindi adaptation is already in the final draft stage and will be ready in a month. The director, if all goes well, will start shooting for the series in January 2021!
