Javed Akhtar replaced by Swanand Kirkire for Kai Po Che

By Hindustan Times

Abhishek Kapoor’s upcoming film Kai Po Che faced many controversies even before going on the floors. The Rock On!! (2008) director had to wait for years to make his dream a reality and now it looks like there is another controversy in store for him. In the launch poster of Kai Po Che,
Javed Akthar was credited as the lyricist, but in the recently released poster, the veteran’s name has been replaced with Swanand Kirkire’s. We tried to get in touch with Abhishek about this change, but he was travelling to New Delhi and unavailable for a comment. However, a source close to the director says, “Their schedules didn’t match, so Javed saab couldn’t do the film. But both of them look forward to working together in the future.”
