Sushant Singh Rajput’s Choc-A-Bloc Schedule Causes A Row Between Abhishek Kapoor And Ronnie Screwvala?
After starring in Neeraj Pandey’s 2016 biopic film on Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the former captain of the Indian cricket team, Sushant Singh Rajput has been getting projects one after another. The actor seems to have signed too many projects which is causing a lot of issues for producers. According to a report in Midday, filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor, who is currently working with Rajput on his love-saga drama, Kedarnath, opposite Sara Ali Khan is in the hope of acquiring additional dates of the actor, but producer Ronnie Screwvala, who will start shooting with Rajput in January for his next film based in the Chambal Valley, refused to comply with him.
The stars started shooting the film’s first schedule of Kedarnath a few weeks ago in the temple town, which will reportedly followed by a schedule in Mumbai, with the makers replicating the set in a city studio. However, given the heavy downpour which is playing spoilsport, Kapoor is worried that he may not be able to wrap up the shoot of his film before Decembe 20, which is the deadline.
The leading tabloid quoted a source as saying, “The Mumbai leg of the film’s shoot was expected to kick off in November. A lavish set is being constructed, and the technology would involve the use of VFX for select sequences. But, the work has been stalled due to the rains. Hence, Gattu [Abhishek Kapoor] asked Ronnie if he could have 10 additional days from his dates with Sushant in January 2018, so that he could complete the shoot.”
Kapoor decided on shifting the second schedule of the film to Mumbai given the bitter cold winters in Kedarnath. However, Screwvala whose film also hopes to capture the winter backdrop wishes to start shooting according to the pre-decided date. Kapoor had initially tried to convince Rajput for the additional dates, but the actor had his hands tied and reportedly asked him to get in touch with Screwvala. With the producer not giving in, seems like tough times await the Kedarnath director.
