Ranveer Dumps Shaad Ali Over Yash Raj

It seems that Ranveer is quite busy these days and don’t have time for many filmmakers. The actor has recently said No to Shaad Ali and said Yes to his mentor’s flick, Aditya Chopra’s next.

Interesting factor is that Ranveer has started his career with assisting Shaad Ali. But now the scenario is changed and Ranveer always consult with his mentor, Aditya Chopra. The actor has not allowed to do film for the next three years. A source says,

“Band Baaja Baraat has changed Ranveer’s fortunes but he has now made himself completely inaccessible to prospective producers. Even the most prominent moviemakers are expected to go through Ranveer’s business manager, while still risking being turned down.”

Surprisingly, Ranveer assisted Shaad in directing Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom and soon the two became close friends. Says a source,

“Shaad showed Ranveer around in the industry, introduced him to important filmmakers. Ranveer has come this far partly because of Shaad’s support.”

After a debacle of Shaad’s last directorial venture, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, Ranveer could helped Shaad but the actor chosen to do Maneesh Sharma’s, Ladies V/S Ricky Bahl instead. Meanwhile, the spokesperson for Yash Raj Films says,

“We never announced a film with Shaad Ali featuring Ranveer Singh. Everyone else did. Yes, Shaad is going to make a film for Yash Raj but no timeline or cast has been finalised as yet.”
