Lady Killer starring Arjun Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar has reportedly been put on hold due to budget issues. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, a source close to the development has said, "Bhushan Kumar had sanctioned the film at a certain budget but the film has now gone over budget and has resulted in the shoot coming to a standstill. The director along with Arjun Kapoor are now figuring out the ways to finish the film,"
About 20 per cent of the shoot is still incomplete and will require further financial investment. The source added, "But in the post-Covid world, producers feel that adding more money would just increase the burden of recovery. Various ways are being explored now to complete the film,"
Lady Killer is a thriller, co-produced by Kumar and Shaailesh R Singh, and directed by Ajay Bahl.
