Exclusive! Alia Bhatt Is NOT doing Resul Pookutty’s film due to lack of dates – Times of India

Speculation is rife that Alia Bhatt has signed on Resul Pookutty‘s maiden production ‘Piharwa’ but ETimes can now confirm that the reports are untrue.

When contacted, the Oscar-winning sound designer clarifies that Alia hadn’t given a nod to the film. “I had approached her with the script of ‘Piharwa’, which I had developed during the lockdown. While she loved it, she told me she wouldn’t be able to take it up for two years as she had other commitments lined up. And I can’t be waiting that long,” rues Resul, adding that the actress was a thorough professional and replied to him within three weeks instead of keeping him hanging for an answer.

When asked who he had chosen to be at the helm, Resul reveals it’s his batchmate Jyoti Kapoor who will be calling the shots. “She made a much-acclaimed short film in the past,” he exults.

The sound designer-turned-filmmaker goes on to add that he has as many as three major films ready to take off. “I am tying up with a production house and we have almost shaken hands; there’ll be an official announcement soon. The second film will be a remake of the 2015 South film ‘Premam’. I have some fresh and lovely stories and strong content that nobody can say ‘no’ to unless they have genuine date issues. I am also finishing my work on the projects–‘Chehre’, ‘Mumbai Saga‘, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’ (trilingual), and a web series–which had come to a standstill due to the lockdown,” he adds earnestly.

Is the ‘Kasautii Zindagi Kay 2‘ actor Parth Samthaan a part of the film, as reports suggest? “He suits the role: he is a nice boy and a good actor; I like him, but we are yet to sign him on. The producer is talking to him; he is under consideration,” Resul concludes.
