Mumbai’s deluge has just claimed its first Bollywood casualty. The shooting for Madhur Bhandarkar’s comedy Dil To Bacha HaiJee, featuring Ajay Devgn and Ameesha Patel, which was to begin this week, has been postponed.
“I was supposed to start shooting with Omi Vaidya and Emran Hashmi from July 1. All the scenes were outdoors in Mumbai, on the streets and in public places,” said Bhandarkar.
But, thanks to the rain, the director has found himself stuck with his two leading men, with dates getting wasted. “We’re going to start shooting from July 5.
If the weather doesn’t improve, we’ll move indoors and shoot in cafés, etc,” said the filmmaker, who is still on the lookout for a leading lady for his film.
