Akshay Kumar's film Purab Ki Laila Paschim Ka Chhaila is still waiting to see light of the day. The producer and director have been trying to revive the movie and they have now renamed it as Hello India. But is Akki willing?india Updated: Jun 27, 2009 19:15 IST
Haaye daiyya.. what a way to begin a Saturday morning! Considering the mausam mastana, thanks to the baraste baadal.. perfect for a cup of piping hot adraki chai and samosas, lazing about in my hammock, soaking in the bheegi bheegi rut and all that. But nah, I’m being updated about old projects that were, until now, lost in the realms of time. Hmmph!
Khair, a trade types khabru called to crib about Akshay Kumar, whose film, Purab Ki Laila Paschim Ka Chhaila is still waiting to see light of the day. So what’s the problem, I wondered.
According to my informer, the producer and director have been trying to revive the movie for a couple of years now.. more so after Akki chose to bail out those nirmatas whose films with him were stuck in the cans.
So the producer and director of the film, now renamed as Hello India, have been following up with the Khiladi Kumar
for some taareekh to shoot the remaining portions that has a song featuring him and Udita Goswami.. and wrap up the film. But to no avail.
Reason: seems Akki isn’t reciprocating the producer and director’s enthusiasm.. and has been maintaining a non-committal silence. Since he was struggling to become an actor back then and today, this film is not on his list of priorities. Tsk tsk.
