The film also stars Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead roles.
But according to a report in DNA, there’s some sort of tension between Yami and the makers of the film. The film Batti Gul Meter Chalu is being co-produced by KriArj Entertainment and T-Series. So apparently, there is a tiff between Yami and Divya Khosla Kumar, which was fuelled during the post-production and promotions of Sanam Re.
A source is quoted in DNA, “There’s an internal conflict. The banner has not forgiven Yami and is still upset with her.” This is the reason that Yami has not been approached for any films by T-Series after Sanam Re.
It seems that T-Series was in no mood to do another film with Yami but she has bagged this film because of Prernaa Arora and Shree Narayan Singh. Both of them felt that Yami is the best choice for the role. The source added, “Apparently, she and Bhushan Kumar spoke about the issue and the banner wants an apology from Yami. Prernaa has asked Yami to apologise and move on. She even had a word with Bhushan’s team and tried to convince them to accept her as a member of the cast.”
The source further revealed that Yami is not keen on making any apologise. “Yami still feels strongly that she was right and doesn’t want to apologise. So, her saying sorry isn’t happening for sure. But, Prernaa is definitely going ahead with her for the film,” the source added.
