In fresh reports, it is being said that the Khalnayak star opted out of it after Madhuri Dixit was roped in. Last month, a report in DNA stated that he opted out of the Karan Johar produced movie and followed it up with resigning from projects like the multi-starrer Blockbuster. "When Sanjay met another producer friend recently, he was overheard saying that the multi-starrer comedy Bittu was planning, isn't happening anymore. He has opted out of Blockbuster and the film is on the backburner for now," DNA quoted the source as saying.
Ahead of the reports, Karan Johar tweeted to confirm that Madhuri Dixit has signed on the dotted line. "Some clarifications! Yes. We are honoured and humbled to have Madhuri Dixit on board for Abhivarman's next! No the film is not titled Shidtay! Yes the film will commence shoot in mid-April! The film's final cast and credits will be announced soon!"
