Sequels in Bollywood often depict an extension of an already successful prequel that has registered audience for the same. Filmmakers gamble with sequels owing to loyal fan base that it shares from its prequels. After Anurag Basu announced the sequel of his popular 2007 movie Life In A Metro, speculations about the casting has been on rife for quite some time now.

According to the reports, Abhishek Bachchan who plays one of the leads in the sequel has already started shooting for the film. Moreover, reports also claimed that Parineeti Chopra too has been signed for Life In A Metro 2.

Now, the latest reports suggest that the actress has walked out of the project citing date issues.

So, unfortunately she won't be able to be a part of his film." - a quote sent by YRF on Parineeti exiting from Anurag Basu's film."

On the other hand, some reports also state that Parineeti Chopra was not too interested to work in a multi-starrer film in this phase of her career. The sequel could have probably starred Parineeti Chopra opposite Rajkummar Rao while also it would have marked her first collaboration with Anurag Basu.

For the uninitiated, Life In A Metro was a multi-starrer film, which had starred Shilpa Shetty, Kangana Ranaut, Konkana Sen Sharma, Irrfan Khan and others. The sequel to the film will also be a multi-starrer, but with different casts and plotline adding to its advantage.
