Earlier it was reported that Shahid Kapoor’s next venture Farzi had run into trouble with the actor gearing up for his marriage. Now we hear that the makers of the film have decided to replace the Shaandaar actor. In fact, Arjun Kapoor will be stepping into Shahid’s shoes for the film.


Apparently, Farzi directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK was initially expected to commence shooting in November last year, but was later shifted to December. However the film suffered another delay when Shahid began shooting for Shandaar in London and returned to India only in February. Commenting on the replacement a source close to the film says, “Since Shahid’s dates have kept on changing, the makers of the film have thought of replacing the actor and got Arjun Kapoor on board instead.”

Produced by Eros, Farzi also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing a cop and Kriti Sanon who will now play Arjun Kapoor’s love interest in the film.
