Just days back it was reported that mismanagement of Sanjay Dutt's days had resulted in his ZILA GHAZIABAD getting indefinitely postponed. While the film's producer Vinod Bachchan had maintained silence over the 'issue', we have an inside dope on the current situation. As per our well-placed source, the film's shooting won't resume before September now, which means that the multi-starrer may see the light of the day only in 2013.
"Sanju baba has now given his dates for September," confirms the source, "Earlier the plans were to wrap up the film this summer but since his role has been increased, there are 15 days required at a stretch. He has these dates available in September and the makers have been informed about it. Combination dates are being worked out with other actors now but that should not be an issue. Sanju's dates are on priority."
It is expected that other actors like Arshad Warsi and Vivek Oberoi would comply as well and reschedule their other commitments since ZILLA GHAZIABAD is a mighty project for them. However, despite the film's shooting expected to complete in September, the release may have to wait.
CHECK OUT: When would ZILA GHAZIABAD see light of the day?
"Sanju's SON OF SARDAAR would be released first where he has a pivotal role," the source adds, "Since the film has his thick buddy Ajay Devgn in the lead, he also wants to compensate him for the RASCALS debacle. Because SON OF SARDAR has a Diwali deadline, ZILA GHAIZABAD may in all likelihood gets pushed further. Later in the year there are biggies like TALAASH, KHILADI 786 and DABANGG 2 lined up. It is quite unlikely that 'baba' want to invade their space."
Due to this, there are further costs added to the project as well. Guess we haven't heard the last of real time woes for this 'realistic' film!
