As per reports, Abhishek had been working on the script for over a year prior to he approached Varun Dhawan. After much back-and-forth with Dharma Productions’ head honcho and mentor Karan Johar, the script is still in the premature stage and the shooting schedule will be drafted remembering Varun and Alia’s dates.
Recently there were reports that Aditya Roy Kapur will be seen playing the parallel lead alongside Varun in the film. However, it appears that the creators have reverted to their original choice of ‘2 States’ on-screen character Arjun Kapoor inverse Varun and Alia. While the film’s spokesperson affirmed that Varun and Alia are reuniting for Abhishek’s film, the third lead is still under wraps.
