B-town buzz: Parineeti backs out of Ajay Devgn's Bhuj: The Pride Of India
As Parineeti Chopra is tied up with the biopic on badminton champ Saina Nehwal, she couldn't allot dates to Ajay Devgn's production.
Parineeti Chopra has opted out of Bhuj: The Pride Of India. The Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt and Sonakshi Sinha-starrer is based on the 1971 Indo-Pak war. As Pari is tied up with the biopic on badminton champ Saina Nehwal, she couldn't allot dates to Devgn's production. Before she kickstarted the shooting of Amole Gupte's film, she also had to undergo a strict regime to learn the game. There was no way she could balance both films.

The song revolves around a father explaining to his child that the world is a strange and upside-down place, and the best way to deal with weird situations is through humour.
