Sunny Deol’s “Bhaiyyaji Superhit” on hold

Ghayal 2, The Man and now Bhaiyaaji Superhit. Sunny Deol’s third film has come to standstill. The movie probably came to standtill because of differences between the director Neeraj Pathak and producer Fauzia Arshi.

A source revealed,

“There were differences between the producer and director as the movie was going over budget right after the first schedule and Neeraj approached Subhash Ghai, without the producer Fauzia’s knowledge who is producing the film under the banner of Daily Multimedia Ltd & Metro Movies. The producer was shocked with the news of her project being produced by someone else when she holds the rights and has no plans to co-produce it.”

“I am not planning to shelve this project. I have put it on hold currently. This movie will go on floors when the script and budget is in place.”

Said the producer Fauzia Arshi.

She adds,

“After we finished 15 days of shooting which went well, director Neeraj Pathak asked me to increase the budget by Rs. 6 crores. That’s a big amount! He has a good story but till I don’t get a definite budget, and shooting script in hand, I wouldn’t be able to let the movie go on floors.”

Did you speak to Neeraj for taking the project to Subhash Ghai? She said,

“Yes, I did. He said he just spoke and mentioned about the project and there must be some misunderstanding. The film is all mine and I have the rights for the same. I was shocked on seeing Subhash Ghai’s statement in the paper. I’m assuming it is some misunderstanding as told to me by Neeraj.”

Neeraj Pathak remained unavailable for comment.
