Sushant Singh Rajput-Sara Ali Khan’s Kedarnath must have come to a halt now, but that doesn’t seem to have backed him down one bit. The actor who was last seen in ‘Raabta’, shifted his focus to Son Chiriya, that also stars Bhumi Pednekar. From what we hear, the actor is so committed to this film that he has even managed to convince filmmaker Abhishek Chaubey that the song he shot for, didn’t have enough scope for a male lead and has to thus be reshot.
Mid-Day quoted a source as saying, “While going through the footage of the song, Sushant felt that the romance between his character and Bhumi’s wasn’t coming across. Since this is the only song that throws light on their love story in the otherwise gritty dacoit drama, it was imperative that the romance be established. On seeing the rushes over and over again, they realised that the song focussed on Bhumi’s character with little scope for the male lead. When Sushant suggested the changes to Abhishek, he decided to reshoot it with a balanced approach.”
The source further added that new version of the song will see Sushant’s character professing his love for Bhumi. The song has reportedly been redone to avoid any kind of issues going forward. “It would have been difficult to redo this later since special permissions were taken for the shoot in Madhya Pradesh,” the source added. Meanwhile, apart from Son Chiriya and Kedarnath, Sushant is also expected to star in Chanda Mama Door Ke. While there’s a buzz doing the rounds that the film might get shelved, till there is no confirmation fans are hoping that the do get to see their favourite star in this one of a kind film.
