The much talked about film CHENAB GANDHI which was being produced by SLB Films and directed by talented filmmaker Vibhu Puri has run into trouble. Buzz is that Sanjay Leela Bhansali will no longer be associated with this film.
The film was almost finalised to go on the floors and the star cast of the film includes names like Big B, Vidya Balan and Rajeev Khandelwal.
According to some reliable sources, though Sanjay Leela Bhansali has opted out of the film, the director is planning to talk to other producers in order to get the required funding for this project.
Confirming this development, Vibhu Puri, the director of CHENAB GANDHI adds, ''It's true that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has distanced himself from the film. He will no longer be producing it. But, it doesn't mean that the project is shelved. In fact I'm planning to speak to other producers about this project and hopefully will get a breakthrough soon.''
It is worth to mention that Vibhu Puri has earlier assisted Sanjay Leela Bhansali on various projects and his creative genius has been highly praised by SLB on many occasions.
