Shah Rukh Khan didn't get along with RA.One's original director Anubhav Sinha (of Tum Bin fame) is hardly news. After getting Karan Johar to direct romantic scenes between him and Kareena Kapoor, SRK has now roped in Dostana filmmaker Tarun Mansukhani to take over last 20 days of the shoot.
Shah Rukh wanted Karan to direct the remaing portions of the film but since the director was busy, he suggested Tarun's name. "Karan told Shah Rukh that he is extremely busy at the moment with his own directorial venture Student Of The Year, which goes on floors next month. However, Karan provided him with an option. He told Shah Rukh that Tarun Mansukhani was very competent, had a great equation with Priyanka Chopra since his Dostana days and would be just right to take over the last schedule," a source told Mumbai Mirror.
SRK followed his friend's advice and took Tarun on board. "Shah Rukh was very happy with Mansukhani's work on the last schedule. Mansukhani also shares a great equation with Kareena since the days of Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham, in which he had assisted Karan. For RA.One, he shot a few scenes with Kareena as well," added the source.
However, Sinha dismissed the reports. "Arre maulah. Mansukhani was helping SRK in the capacity of an executive producer," he told the tabloid.
So, whose film is it anyway?
