Ever since it has been announced that Abhishek Chaubey’s next is Udta Punjab, he has been facing trouble with the casting of the film. It was reported that Kareena might share screen space with Shahid Kapur that made headlines all over, even though Alia Bhatt would play the romantic lead opposite him. Now a report in Mumbai Mirror suggests that Ayushmann Khurrana, who was eager to work with Dedh Ishqiya famed director Abhishek for Udta Punjab and was being considered opposite Kareena, has been shown the exit door. Why? Kareena allegedly wants to work with a star and feels that she might look too old opposite the young lad, Ayushmann.
Sources also reveal that Ayushmann opted out of Udta Punjab due to date issues and is currently busy with Hawaizaada and Dum Laga Ke Haisha. Ayushmann and Abhishek have decided to work together on another project. But as of now, Kareena and Abhishek are mum about this.
