    Chetan's Two States adaption potsponed

    Subhash K Jha | May 21, 2011, 11.45am IST

    Chetan Bhagat's aspirations to see his novel 2 States come alive on the silver-screen have been postponed indefinitely.

    Any attempt to jump start the project has been jinxed. Previously, the film's adaptation of the novel faced a roadblock when director Siddharth Anand had a fall out with producer Sajid Nadiadwala. Fortunately, Vishal Bhardwaj stepped-in to take over the project. However, the fate of 2 States is again uncertain as Bhardwaj is busy composing the music for Mira Nair's Broadway adaptation of Monsoon Wedding, which goes on stage early next year.

    In addition to his busy schedule, the director and his co-writer Sabrina Dhawan have been struggling to get the script up to standard. Our source told us, "Vishal won't plunge into the project, unless he is convinced of the script. And so he is now taking a break from that project."

    When contacted, Bhardwaj confirmed that he has been busy focusing on his collaboration with Nair. He told us, "I am back where I had started—music composition. I'm currently working on the music of Mira Nair's play."

    Nadiadwala too confirmed that the project is on hold. He said, "At the moment the 2 States project stands exactly where it was some months ago. The sceenplay is yet to be completed . The casting has not gone beyond Shah Rukh Khan. Right now, I am too much into the pre-production of Housefull 2 to give my time to anything else." When asked about Bhardwaj's collaboration with Nair, Nadiadwala simply said, "That may be possible. We all have other commitments."

    nika and SRKdream thank this.

    Looks like the collaboration between Shah Rukh & Vishal is jinxed.:ohwell: I won't be too sad if they scrap the whole film all together. I'll be looking forward to Yashji's film now & hope it starts soon.

    Hope any movie directed by Vishal Bhardwaj will happen...
    I'm really worried since all SRK projects have been postopned (Two States, Xtreme City) or given to someone else (Jolly LLB)...

    RT @ChetanBhagat Please don't believe any rumors about 2 states film. Good things take time. Loads of patience required to make a good film project.
    JUG, MeryamaSRK, Number8 and 3 others thanked this.
