Govinda is in a dilemma. His home production, Shaadi Banayega, which will relaunch his banner, is stuck. The reason is Sanjay Dutt who has walked out of the project.
While the film's debutant director Hadi Ali Abrar denies this, Dharam Oberoi who looks after Dutt's production house, says the star was never supposed to do the film.
"I know the news has been doing the rounds but Sanju had not given the nod to this project," he asserts.
Abrar however maintains that Dutt is ‘in'.
"We will be recording songs soon. I have confirmations from both Govinda and Sanjay, we're working out on the combination dates of the other actors," he says.
The film is expected to start towards the end of the year. Meanwhile, Oberoi still insists that Dutt's diary is full and he has no dates to spare.
"I won't deny that they approached us for the film and wanted Sanju's dates this year. It's impossible, he's leaving for the Bahamas for Blue and after that he'll be going to Mauritius for Chatur Singh. Then there's GS Entertainment's Lamha," Oberoi rattles off.
"Where's the time? Since he's a professional, he can't back out of the projects to which he has already committed and taken money for. "
Oberoi points out that Dutt doesn't even have dates for his own banner which he is planning to revive.
He signs off saying, "Govinda is a very very dear friend and Sanju will always be there for him. He will work in his home production for sure.. but in the future."
