Deepa Mehta's Midnight's Children jinxed?

Canadian writer-director Deepa Mehta has announced the film titled Winds of Change which is an adaption of Booker Prize winner Salman Rushdie’s book Midnight’s Children.

Initially, the star cast was to include Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Om Puri and Naseeruddin Shah. But none of the actors accepted the roles offered.

Later, Irrfan Khan, Shabana Azmi, Anupam Kher, Soha Ali Khan, Rahul Bose and Nandita Das were said to be part of the cast. But, Irrfan is busy with other projects while Shabana is not yet committed. Anupam Kher has not been seen on screen for sometime now.

The latest is that Nandita Das has walked out of the project as she has to take care of her six month old child.

Siddharth and Shriya were also said to be part of the film. But it is not clear who would be in the final casting if and when the film goes on floors.
