Ronnie Screwvala to now bankroll Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath!
Ronnie has paid Rs 14 crore to its original producers and has now completely taken over the film along with Abhishek.
Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan starrer Kedarnath kick-started with great enthusiasm but soon after completing the first schedule, things started falling out. The film was initially produced by Abhishek Kapoor and Prernaa Arora’s production houses. But after their recent controversy, Prernaa’s KriArj Entertainment backed out from the film and it was said that Abhishek will produce it under his home banner Guy In the Sky Pictures solely.
Now, as per reports in a leading tabloid, producer Ronnie Screwvala will be taking over the project which ran into trouble. Talking about it, a source stated to the tabloid, "When Ronnie saw footage from Kedarnath; he loved it and has decided to back the film. He has paid Bhushan and Prernaa around Rs 14 crore and Ekta approximately Rs 8 crore for their investment in the film and has now completely taken over the film along with Abhishek. Everything was settled amicably and Abhishek can’t wait to start shooting again."
While Ronnie said, "Kedarnath is a great love story set against the backdrop of the powerful true-life event that affected us all during the floods in 2013. It completely matches my vision of great stories that need to be told and I can’t wait to bring this story to the audiences early next year."
The movie was initially touted as Sara Ali’s debut film but now, when it has been surrounded by controversies, it is difficult to say whether it will be released this year or not.
Meanwhile, Sara has signed her second film, Simmba, which is slated to release on 28th December 2018.
