Actress Kajal Aggarwal was all gung-ho recently when she decided to turn producer for one of her films, to be directed by Prasanth Varma of Awe fame. Apart from bankrolling the breezy entertainer, Kajal was also supposed to star in the female-centric drama.

Turns out, Kajal’s ambition of turning a producer was a short-lived one as she has since backed out of the commitment. Apparently, she has been completely pre-occupied with her acting projects, making it tough for her to focus on production issues.

A source informs, “Just when things seemed to be going well, Kajal decided to step down as the producer of the film. She has her hands full at this point of time and backed out of the project in the capacity of the producer.”

However, Kajal continues to stay on board as the leading lady. “She loved Prasanth Varma’s script and wants to be a part of an experimental cinema,” adds the source.

While a new producer is likely to come on board, Kajal is adjusting her date diary to start shooting for the film soon.
