Earlier in March this year, Netflix had announced a comedy-drama Bulbul Tarang starring Sonakshi Sinha and Tahir Raj Bhasin in the lead roles. However, after a period, the film is said to be shelved by Netflix.
A media portal has recently learned that Netflix India has now cancelled this Sonakshi Sinha film. “Together with our partners, we made the decision to not move forward with the film. We are grateful to the amazing cast and crew and hope to collaborate with them very soon,” a Netflix spokesperson informed the media. The makers are not revealing the reason behind the film’s cancellation, however, sources say it could be Sinha’s sudden exit from the project that might have triggered it.
As the film gets shelved, its director Shree Narayan Singh has now shifted his focus to another project and is currently filming for a Zee5 show, Sutliyan Starring Shiv Pandit and Plabita Borthakhur.
Meanwhile, Sonakshi is also busy shooting for Double XL — a slice-of-life, a story about overweight girls that also stars Huma Qureshi and Zaheer Iqbal.
