Is Sonam’s Sahibaan Shelved?

After one flop, Delhi6, it seems that the days of Rakeysh Mehra are not going good that’s why after slipping out his first project, Krrish 2 from his hands, his second project, Sahibaan has also shelved. Earlier, Sr. Roshan has chosen Rakeysh Mehra to direct Krish 2 but after seeing the response of Kites, Sr. Roshan decided to direct himself the film.

Sahibaan was based on the love story of Mirza- Sahibaan, in which Sonam Kapoor was playing the lead character. The actress, Sonam Kapoor said,

“Rakeysh talks to me about so many films. Sahibaan is one of them. Let us see which one of these works out. But I want to work with him for sure. He is extremely realistic, a good man and a great filmmaker. I want to play characters of conflict, like the ones in his films.”

During the shooting of Mehra suddenly started calling Sonam as Sahibaan. Like Delhi6, Rakyesh has decided to caste Abhishek Bachchan. Apparently, Rakeysh did not get any producer for the flick. A source says,

“Sahibaan is not happening. Mehra is busy in a lot of production work.”

Though, Rakeysh  did not confirm the  news and said,

“Did I ever announce such a film officially? So where is the question of shelving it?”
