We reported around a week ago that Emraan Hashmi had to take a break from Danis Tanovic's next to do some 'patchwork' for Ek Thi Daayan - scheduled for release in April. Now reports are pouring in regarding the reasons for the re-shoot being held.
Co-produced by Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj, Ek Thi Daayan is still being shot even as the release date for the film approaches. According to Mid-Day, the need for re-shoot arose when Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj had 'creative differences' over some of the canned scenes.
Mid Day quoted a source as saying, "Unit folk have been told that there has been a creative clash between the two producers. Ekta wants to make the horror thriller more appealing to the aam janata with Vishal having no option but to let it happen."
The tabloid further reports claimed that certain scenes were re-shot in accordance with Ekta Kapoor's taste.

Danis Tanovic lets Emraan Hashmi go
Emraan Hashmi’s film with Danis Tanovic (Best Foreign Language Film Oscar winner for No Man’s Land in 2002) is one of the biggest projects in the actor’s career. Yet, in the midst of shooting for the yet-untitled film in the interiors of Patiala, he has to take a break, effectively delaying Tanovic’s schedule by a week. The reason: Balaji wants Emraan back in Mumbai to complete patchwork of his upcoming release, Ek Thi Daayan (ETD), produced by Ekta Kapoor.
According to an insider, “Emraan needs to be back in Mumbai for a week. The team at Balaji had a word with Danis, who wasn’t very happy, but he allowed Emraan to go.”
