It seems Dostana sequel will take some time before it hit screens! Apparently producer Karan Johar is not happy with director Tarun Mansukhani's script and has asked him to work on it again.
Karan Johar is specifically unhappy with the way second half of the movie is shaped up.
A source informs Mumbai Mirror, "Karan is not very happy with the script and especially the second half. He has asked Tarun to re-work the second half and take as much time as he wants to. The movie for now has been postponed to an indefinite period. Karan heard the script before leaving for London."The source continues, "The differences were quite strong. Karan did not encourage what Tarun had penned and despite Tarun's repeated attempts Karan did not budge. They both had different points of view and failed to come to a common ground. The movie has been getting postponed for some reason or the other. Sometimes there were date issues with the three stars and then the script itself."
"In fact the immediate crew has been asked to take their time off from the pre-production till Tarun is ready with the script, approved by Karan. They were also supposed to shoot a grand song in a circus next month and were doing a reccee in Kolhapur for the same to get some references. Everything has been called off and cancelled," adds the source.
Tarun Manuskhani confirms the news to Mumbai Mirror, "Karan and I have collectively taken a call to delay the start of filming by a few months so as to gain more preparation time. Dostana will still release as per schedule in the second half of 2011."
The director however rubbishes reports of unhealthy vibe between them. He says, "There is absolutely no discord between Karan and myself.”
We believe you Tarun.
