Sources tell us the project is now being revived. The film was being co-produced by Amit Kapoor and Sidhartha M Jain, with Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Motion Pictures on board as the distributor. However, when the budget was overshot, Ekta was said to have filed a complaint against Sidhartha.

Says an insider, "The film ran into a financial mess and it was difficult for Balaji to take over and recover the investment. Director Navdeep Singh also got into a fight with VFX specialist Niraj Shanghai, which was the last nail in the coffin. Forty per cent of the shoot had been completed then."

The source adds that Ekta will be sole producer and the film will start rolling after the Navdeep-directed 'NH10' releases. "Abhay and Preeti were together when 'Rock The Shaadi' took off. Though they parted ways recently, they were professional enough to agree to shoot together," states the source.

Preeti, however, has a small role in the film. Genelia D'Souza will play Abhay's ladylove on screen.

Abhay and Ekta remained unavailable for comment.
