Shaad Ali's film on hold until next year
The super-gifted Saathiya director Shaad Ali who is ready to resume his interrupted directorial career after Bunty Aur Babli and the fiasco Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom would have to wait a little longer. Aditya Chopra has explicitly told Shaad that his film would have to wait until next year.
Says a source, "Shaad now has to deal with two levels of postponement. On one end, Adi won't take the project further until next year. On the other end, Shaad's leading man Ranveer Singh is currently working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali (SLB) who won't part with his leading man's dates until Ram Leela is complete. Shaad had hoped to utilize the breaks in SLB's shooting to start his film. That doesn't seem possible."
Shaad seems resigned to further delay. "It's okay. I've not directed a film for four years. What are a few months more?"
