For a director who doesn’t take too kindly to interference, Sanjay Leela Bhansali certainly seems to have mellowed quite down a bit.
The filmmaker was all set to start his next film, as yet untitled, from the second week of April. The film toplines Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. But the news is that Roshan requested him to push the shoot little ahead. And guess what? Bhansali came up with an idea which suited both the parties.
Roshan Jr wants to move on to his next project only once he’s totally convinced and through with his home production, Kites, directed by Anurag Basu. The film also show cases Kangana Ranaut and Barbara Mori. So Bhansali and Roshan J have come to a conclusion that the shooting will start as per schedule — which is mid-next month. But Roshan will join the team only once he’s free from his home production.
Meanwhile, the director will go ahead and can the scenes for which he doesn’t require Roshan J.
A source close to Roshan J also informs that the actor is excited about his film with Bhansali for two reasons — one, it’s the first time he’s making a movie with the Devdas director. Second, it’s the third movie in which he’s co-starring with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
The duo had earlier worked together in Dhoom 2 and Jodhaa Akbar. Incidentally, this untitled project also marks a hat-trick for Bhansali and Rai Bachchan after Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Devdas.
