It seems Virus Diwan has caught a serious virus and Arjun Kapoor may have to wait for his big break in Bollywood till it gets mended, that is, if it's repairable.Apparently, it is because of the creative difference between the producers and the director of the film Bumpy, that Boney's son's launch pad scheduled for a December 30 release, has been shelved. The producers, Yash Raj Films, however, still believe that Arjun's career will kick start with this YRF project only.But Arjun can still heave a sigh of relief. Apparently, Habib Faisal, who won a National Award for his remarkable film Do Dooni Chaar and also the writer for Band Baaja Baaraat, will launch Arjun in another film. Our source said, "Arjun was said to be the most talked about newcomer when YRF announced the film.It was scheduled to release this year. However, now Arjun will have to wait a little longer to make his Bollywood debut. His film Virus Diwan has been shelved and now a new launch pad is being worked out for him. Aditya Chopra had a meeting with Habib Faisal who will direct a film for Adi, which will launch Arjun.
Bumpy will no longer direct Arjun's launch pad. The differences between Adi and Bumpy are yet unclear though."
Refuting the news, YRF spokesperson said, "Virus Diwan is very much on track. We are hunting for the lead girl and pre-production is on. The only thing that may happen is a shift in date to bypass rains for the shoot as its adding a 30% increment on cost that the film's budget cannot absorb.There are additional projects in the pipeline for Arjun. They will be announced in addition to Virus Diwan, not instead of."It's yet to be seen if this virus affects Arjun's enthusiasm for his launch, if not the market value.
