Basu’s film is delayed for a long time now and insists that the film is not shelved and although he’s not sure with whom, he may continue with the project with someone else if Ranbir can’t provide dates this year. In earlier interviews with PTI, Anurag said, ”I don’t know with whom I will make the film and when exactly. After Sanjay Dutt biopic, Ranbir will be busy with another film, [Ayan Mukerji’s] ‘Dragon’. I don’t want to wait for too long for my [much-delayed] film, so if Ranbir can’t give dates this year, I will go with someone else”.
