Exactly a year back film maker Guddu Dhanoa (of ZIDDI, SALAKHEN, ELAAN, TU CHOR MAIN SIPAHI fame) had announced his romantic musical DEEWANA MUST DIE.
Though the film had nothing to do with similar sounding JOHN TUCKER MUST DIE, it had created quite some buzz around it; more so because of rumours around the film being a sequel to Shahrukh Khan starrer DEEWANA which was co-produced by Dhanoa. Also, the film maker had gone ahead and roped in Adhyayan Suman in the lead role even though he was fresh out of the box office disaster of HAAL-E-DIL.
However, as things stand today, Adhyayan Suman is no more acting in the film and the project is yet to get on floors.
Says Adhyayan who has been busy winning appreciation for his sensitive performance in recently released JASHHN, "No, I am no more working on DEEWANA MUST DIE. It was a project that was thought of quite some time back but it hasn't kick started. Let me not get into the reasons but the fact is that I am looking at different projects now."
A year back when he had agreed to do DEEWANA MUST DIE, he was quite gung ho about the film. He has said, "I am happy to be a part of Guddu Dhanoa cinema. I realize that at the end of the day, it is hardcore commercial cinema that runs and Gudduji's films have always provided wholesome entertainment."
One wonders what really transpired over the period of time that led to a change in heart!
