We have already reported several times that filmmaker Anurag Basu is planning to take forward the hit film Life In a Metro into the franchise and he has started planning for the film. The film will be a four love story that all are connected with each other and it deals with the complexities of relationships.
The sequel of the film will have actors like Rajkummar Rao, Parineeti Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan and others. Reports were that Taapsee Pannu will also be a part of the film but now Fatima Sana Shaikh, the fame of Dangal has replaced her.

It is being told that Taapsee Pannu doesn't have that many dates for the film for what Basu is looking for. As of now, Basu has approached Fatima and rumours are that she may a part of the project.
Bollywood Hungama quoted a source of the film, “Dates were a major conflict and that is the reason why Anurag Basu had to look out for a different option for the lead. And lucky for him, he had already spoken to Fatima in the past. So, when dates did become an issue, it was an easy fix for him this time around.”
