The filmmaker got upset when he discovered that Tum Mile, which was earlier planned as a love story has turned out more to be a tragedy. Bhatt managed to spin some magic on the editing table though, and got the flaws corrected.
Mahesh chopped off 10 minutes of flood scenes. The film is based on July 2005 Mumbai deluge. Bhatt tells a daily, “The film did not turn out the way Kunal had visualised it. The film is not about the disaster, but the love story. I just toned down the disaster scenes to make it more viewer-friendly."
Commenting on the editing that Bhatt did, director Kunal Deshmukh says, "I was dead against cutting some portions of the flood scenes because I thought that they really stood out. Bhattsaab wanted to play up the love angle and I understood his point of view when I saw the film after 10 minutes had been chopped off. I loved the flow."
All's well that ends well!
