''I am surprised why there are questions around DULHA MIL GAYA being two years in the making. With due respect to JAANE TU YA JAANE NAA, even it took as much as 3.5 years to reach the finishing line'', says Viveck Vaswani in an amused tone whose Shah Rukh Khan starrer DULHA MIL GAYA in now back on track with a marathon 20 day shooting schedule coming to close.

''Success of JAANE TU YA JAANE NAA shows what stuff good films are made of. Also, it tells that if at all there is some delay in a film's shooting being completed, it could well be for the product's betterment itself. We are also not hurrying up on DULHA MIL GAYA'', Viveck sets the record straight here.

''I didn't compromise even when I made RAJU BAN GAYA GENTLEMAN with Shah Rukh Khan. That was such a long time ago and at during those days so many people didn't want me to make a film with a rank newcomer like Shah Rukh. Still, I believed my instincts. Same is the case with DULHA MIL GAYA. I know it is a very good film in the making and director Muddassar Aziz is doing such a brilliant job. Why should there be any compromise just in order to release the film faster'', questions Viveck.

But isn't the delay more due to Shah Rukh Khan's lack of interest in the project?

''Has Shah Rukh Khan ever said anything to this tune? So why anyone should be speculating on this. He was sent a bound script just like it was sent to Sushmita Sen or Fardeen Khan. Everyone knew what their role and believed in the project. There are loose talks around lack of dates from Shah Rukh but in actuality that was never the case'', clarifies Viveck on record.

Talking about the role of a section of media in rumors around DULHA MIL GAYA, he goes on to add, ''Fortunately or unfortunately, I haven't hired any PR office to plug stories on my behalf. Neither do I have anyone enrolled to deny any hogwash that has been written about DULHA MIL GAYA. I have allowed press to do their job while I have carried on with mine.''

Talking about the happier moments he is going through, Viveck informs, ''Contrary to the belief of many that the film has been stalled, let me clarify that it is pretty much going on at a good pace. We are in the closing stages of a 20 day marathon shoot at Panchgani, Vashi and Pune. With this, we would have shot 90% of the film. Only a few scenes and a song with Shah Rukh Khan remain which would be canned within next 3 months, hence bringing the principal shoot to closure. Meanwhile editing on the film is already on and there is very good probability of us arriving in January 2009.''

Directed by debutant Muddassar Aziz, DULHA MIL GAYA has been prominently shot in Trinidad and Tobago with music by Lalit Pandit. Also starring Mohit Chadha, Tara Sharma, Johny Lever, Beena Kak, Suchitra Pillai and Viveck Vaswani himself, DULHA MIL GAYA was officially launched in January 2007.
