Barun Sobti and Sapna Pabbi-starrer 'Satra Ko Shaadi Hai' shelved?
Lead pair of John Abraham's long-in-the-making 'Satra Ko Shaadi Hai', Barun Sobti and Sapna Pabbi, hints at the film not seeing the light of the day
John Abraham's big fat wedding on reel, 'Satra Ko Shaadi Hai', seems to have been called off for good. In the making for the past four years, the project stars 50-odd actors, with Barun Sobti and Sapna Pabbi in the lead. However, the duo have hinted that the film will not see the light of the day.
Barun, who is making a comeback to television with the third instalment of 'Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon', says, "I don't exactly know the status of that film, but I doubt it's ever going to come out. I finished shooting for it long ago."

His co-star Sapna says now may be 'too late' for a release given that it was initially slated to hit screens in 2015. "Earlier, I used to follow up with the director [Arshad Sayed] and the production house to find out the status of the film, but gave up after a point. Now it's too late, no? We had a lot of fun shooting, but I don't know the current status," she adds.
The film was supposed to be co-produced by UTV-Disney, but sources claim after the company folded up its Bollywood production arm, John has apparently not been able to arrange for funds for its release.
At the time of going to press, John remained unavailable for comment.
