Says a source, "Shaad now has to deal with two levels of postponement. On one end, Adi won't take the project further until next year. On the other end, Shaad's leading man Ranveer Singh is currently working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali (SLB) who won't part with his leading man's dates until Ram Leela is complete. Shaad had hoped to utilize the breaks in SLB's shooting to start his film. That doesn't seem possible."
Shaad seems resigned to further delay. "It's okay. I've not directed a film for four years. What are a few months more?"
