Raj Kumar and Hansal Mehta to team up for City Lights

Not many days back there was a confirmed news that Rajkumar Yadav will not be featuring in NH10 and there were strong rumours that Anushka Sharma who is also the producer of the movie decided to kick him out.. Raj Kumar Yadav has surely moved on from that saga and is said to have begged the remake of Bimal Roy’s classic Do Bigha Zameen, titled City Lights to be produced by Bhatts and Fox Star Studios.

While the latest talk is that Raj Kumar himself opted out of the Anushka Sharma starrer due to date issues, the actor seems to have had no problem in striking a deal for this Hansal Mehta directorial. Raj Kumar will be playing the role of Balraj Sahni from the original.

The film has also been surrounded by a lot of controversies after director Ajay Bahl walked out of it. Initially, Ajay who had earlier directed B A Pass was roped in by the Bhatts for this venture but he backed out citing creative differences. Now, Hansal Mehta has been brought in to direct this movie.

However, after much shuffling, the director and the lead actor are all in place to kick start shooting as early as early next week.
