The Vishesh Films and Fox Star Studios’ collaboration worked well for Citylights, as the film garnered for itself a lot of critical acclaim. The next offering from the collaboration was under blur when the news of its lead actress Vidya Balan suffering severe health issues came into the limelight. From pregnancy rumors to more, things worsened when she walked out of Sujoy Ghosh’s Durga Rani Singh. There was a constant talk going on in the industry whether Vidya will walk out of Humari Adhuri Kahaani as well.
In a recent interview to Koimoi, when we asked Mohit about the same, he said, “I never felt the fear that Vidya will walk out of my film. That is because I am aware of the exact health lag she is facing. Not for anything else but I am aware of the reason why she could not do Sujoy’s film. Everything is not being disclosed very openly but she did have health issues she was dealing with. We kinda know what’s going on so I knew what would be the fate of my film. Also, I don’t think one person’s experiences is similar to anybody else’s.”
On being asked the progress of Humari Adhuri Kahaani, Suri volunteered information, “Well the film is currently in a space where Mr. Bhatt needs to work on it. Surely I am there for reference et al but this is his time with the film. Also, I am not somebody who can two time things. So I am too pre-occupied with Ek Villain. After 27th, I am first going to take my wife on a holiday and then begin work on Humari Adhuri Kahaani.”
Though the haze from Vidya’s health issue is still not out, but after Ek Villain, Humari Adhuri Kahaani is in order as scheduled. The film that stars Vidya alongside Emraan Hashmi and Rajkummar Rao is slated for release on June 12th, 2015 tentatively.
