Reportedly Mohit Suri had signed Sushant Singh Rajput to play the male lead in his next film which is an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's popular novel 'Half Girlfriend'. In fact the actor had even dropped at the director's residence and impressed him by enacting one of the scenes of the book.
However now Sushant has opted out of Suri's film. A Mumbai Mirror report quoted him as saying, "It's unfortunate. I was excited about working with Ekta (Kapoor) again but the dates didn't work out. The team wanted the same dates as that of Dinu's (Dinesh Vijan) film, which I am doing next. Since I had committed dates for it long ago, I didn't have an option but to pull out of Mohit's project."
Lastly we hear that Mohit has approached Arjun Kapoor to step into Sushant's shoes. The tabloid quoted a source as saying, "The script has been shared with him."
Meanwhile Sushant will be next seen in Neeraj Pandey's 'MS Dhoni: An Untold Story'.
