National award-winning director Ravi Jadhav is clueless about the status of his filmLaila Majnu with Imtiaz Ali.
Imtiaz and Ravi were to collaborate for the film. "During Balak Palak, Imtiaz Ali and I were talking about doing a Hindi film. It was called Laila Majnu. Imtiaz was going to produce it. We had started work on the script but then he got busy with his own films and I got busy with my work," Ravi told PTI.
"So things did not work out for that film. We are in touch with each other. But that film is left behind," he said.
Imtiaz's younger brother Sajid Ali, reportedly, was working on a film inspired by the Laila-Majnu folklore. It is being produced by Balaji Telefilms and Imtiaz Ali's ex-wife Preety Ali.
"I don't know if it's shelved or not as they are the producers. I don't know if they are doing it with someone else or not. I have no clue about it," Ravi said.
The Timepass helmer has no plans yet to collaborate for some other film with Imtiaz. He is currently looking forward to his next film Banjo, starring Riteish Deshmukh and Nargis Fakhri.
