Today’s blind item is a bit of an old news. To be fair, the issue is still on, which is why a lot of blind items are about it. Knowing the director, there’s a huge chance he will still want to produce this film no matter what. The best thing to do would be to cut down cost or else, everyone goes down if this movie sinks at the box office. Check out the blind item from DNA India.
There’s a big Q-mark on this magnum opus that is set to cost Rs 50 crore more than the filmmaker’s last historical. It was set to roll this year and while the lead actor and actress have been finalised, there have been no further announcements made. Said filmmaker, known for his big-budget extravagance, has yet to find buyers for this project (which is expected to release 2017-end) as the distributors feel that just the lead cast won’t be able to draw in the audience (and the big bucks).
So, the maker is on the lookout for another big star opposite the leading lady to make the project more viable. However, no top star is keen to play second fiddle to the young hero (who will be seen essaying a negative role in the film). Thoda aur intezaar, we guess!
