Why is Zayed Khan no longer Dia Mirza's business partner?

Ever since her foray into Bollywood, Dia Mirza has managed to steer clear of any kind of controversy

However, if rumours are to be believed, not all is well between Dia and her business partner Zayed Khan. The duo along with Dia’s beau Sahil Sangha had floated their banner a couple of years ago and had co-produced Love Breakups Zindagi.

While the actress recently announced her second project, Bobby Jasoos, insiders say that Zayed is not associated with the production. Sources say that Zayed is making his presence felt elsewhere – starring in Ameesha Patel’s upcoming venture.

A source says, “Zayed is already working with Ameesha under her home production banner. So he is not associated with Dia’s second film. He has chosen to stay away from the film and Dia too has let him go.” Though sources close to Dia say that the two parted ways in an amicable manner, rumours are that Dia had an objection to Zayed going ahead and signing Ameesha’s film.

However, Dia rubbishes the rumours, “We came together for Love Break Ups Zindagi just to make that one film and there was no conditions laid before him for any future project. He is family and he will always be a supporter of the production house. He has other commitments too. If he comes up with something or we are doing something where he wants to get involved, he will come back.”

Sahil, who directed the last film, echoes her sentiments, “He wanted to come on board with the first film because he was also acting in it. He has his own production company, his family business and other acting assignments. He has too many things on his plate.” Zayed remained unavailable for comment.
