Contrary to buzz in the air, Ram Gopal Varma's cop drama DEPARTMENT isn't shelved. In fact the film is pretty much on schedule and its shooting would kick-start this summer.

Since Ramu had earlier announced that DEPARTMENT would be his next Hindi film after RAKHT CHARITRA, there was added rise in speculations when there was no further movement right through the first quarter of the year. Commercial failure of Abhishek's KHELEIN HUM JEE JAAN SEY and GAME further added fuel to the fire since DEPARTMENT features him in a key role. Later when Ramu announced that he was starting A LOVE STORY starting this month itself, it was time for obituaries to be written about DEPARTMENT.



The maverick director denies though that 'game' is over.

'It is all sheer nonsense that I have shelved DEPARTMENT. It is very much on', one catches the filmmaker in a tad angry tone, 'People start rumours before checking facts and just end up making something out of nothing. They say that I am filling up the lost time with A LOVE STORY. Sorry, it is untrue since DEPARTMENT was always meant to begin this summer. It is sticking to the schedule. A LOVE STORY is a quickie I am making in between.'

When asked to confirm further plans for DEPARTMENT, Ramu responds while settling down, 'The film doesn't have only Abhishek in the starcast. There are many actors in the film and their combination dates had already been locked.'

Guess that should settle all rumours. Also starring Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt along with Kangna Ranaut, Raveena Tandon and Abhimanyu Singh, DEPARTMENT goes on floors on 20th June.
