What happened was this: Producer Firoz Nadiadwala faced a financial crunch, which resulted in the shooting being stalled, and Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham walking out of the film. And now, the film has completed a circle as Akshay Kumar is back on board for the film which will go on floors soon with a new script! Of course, portions which have already been shot will be shelved.
Firoz Nadiadwala confirmed the development to Mumbai Mirror and promised to announce the new star-cast of the film within a month.
