Here's why 'Shuddh Desi Romance' co-stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Vaani Kapoor missed their date with the 38th Toronto International Film Festival

All the bags were packed and they were ready to go. But alas, owing to a cruel twist of fate, Sushant Singh Rajput and his co-star Vaani Kapoor recently missed going to Toronto.

Shuddh Desi Romance was initially set to release on September 13 but its release date was advanced by a week, as the film was to travel to Canada for the ongoing film festival in Toronto. The cast and crew were set to leave for Toronto but it was not to be for Sushant and Vaani.

Insiders say finally, only Parineeti Chopra managed to represent the cast at the films gala.

However, sources from the production house say Vaani was never scheduled to go, as the newbie had some portions to shoot for the upcoming Telugu version of Band Baaja Baaraat. Unfortunately for Sushant, his father fell ill and the actor had to rush to Patna to be by his side.

A source close to Vaani confirmed the buzz. Sushant remained unavailable for comment.
