Arjun Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar started acting around the same time and have made a name for themselves in Bollywood. Over the years, they have acted in several films but had not worked together until now. Both Bhumi and Arjun are working on the crime thriller film The Lady Killer. Yesterday, it was reported that the filming of the project has been stopped due to budget issues.
However, recently the film’s producer Shailesh Singh has clarified that it’s the unpredictable weather in the north and not the budget that has created a roadblock for the shoot. According to media reports, the team was gearing up to finish the film’s last schedule before incessant rains wreaked havoc in north India. It will most consist of outdoor shots which plays a crucial part in the story. The Lady Killer has already been shot extensively in the northern belt.
Shailesh Singh said that the film is in the post-production stage and only about three to four days of patchwork shoot is left. “But, since this shoot is an outdoor schedule in Uttarakhand we had to push it due to the weather and rains,” he said. He said that 80% of the shoot is completed and the rest 20 will be completed once the monsoon showers die down in the north.
About The Lady Killer
The Lady Killer marks the first collaboration between Arjun and Bhumi. It is directed by Ajay Bahl and produced by Shailesh Singh. The tight thriller is a murder mystery and is planned to release sometime next year. Bhumi had two releases this year, Anubhav Sinha’s Bheed (which chronicled the plight of people during the 2020 lockdown) and Sudhir Mishra’s Afwaah. The latter tackled the issue of fake news and misinformation. Despite great reviews, both films failed to perform well at the box office.

Arjun And Bhumi’s Upcoming Projects
Arjun was last seen in Aasmaan Bhardwaj’s Kuttey. The ensemble thriller failed to perform well both critically and commercially. Both Arjun and Bhumi will be teaming up again for Meri Patni Ka Remake, which is a comedy film directed by Mudassar Aziz. The filming kickstarted last year in September in the United Kingdom. The film is produced by Vashu Bhagnani under his banner Pooja Entertainment and marks Bhumi’s second collaboration with Mudassar after the 2019 Pati Patni Aur Woh.
