SATISH KAUSHIK & HIMESH RESHAMMIYA
Recession has hit hard world over & Bollywood is no exception. Not only has it hit small-time production houses; even big producers are now hesitant about investing their money in exceptionally exorbitant projects.
Recently when we asked actor-director turned producer Satish Kaushik about his forthcoming venture HHEY GUJJU starring Himesh Reshammiya in a double role, which was scheduled to go on floors last year, his reply took us by surprise. We were taken aback when he said, 'HHEY GUJJU is very close to my heart. But considering the fact that recession has already hit India, and the film demanded advance action and various foreign locations for the shoot; we felt the need to keep it on hold for some time.'
Meanwhile, Satish Kaushik who turned co-producer with close pal Anupam Kher under Karol Bagh productions is all set to release their second film TEREE SANG on 7th August.
It must be recalled that Karol Bagh's first production KARZZZ starring Himesh bombed at the box-office. Considering all these facts it seems the phrase 'once bitten, twice shy' perfectly befits this case!
