Anil – Ahmed out of Deewane Hue Pagal

There’s much confusion regarding Firoz Nadiadwala’s next film Deewane Hue Pagal that was launched earlier this year amidst much fanfare. The film originally was to star Anil Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor and Paresh Rawal and the director was Ahmed Khan. However there has been a twist in the tale even before the movie went on floors with a colossal changeover in the cast and crew. Producer Nadiadwala confirmed that Anil Kapoor in the film has been replaced by Akshay Kumar while even the director has been changed from Ahmed Khan to David Dhawan. Also the story of the film has now been altered. Initially it was reported to be a remake of the Hollywood flick Mickey Blue Eyes but now the story has all the men chasing a single woman in the film. The reason cited for Ahmed Khan’s replacement is that his first attempt at direction – Lakeer went dud at the box-office and so artistes were hesitant to work with him. Incidentally Firoz Nadiadwala’s last release Aan – Men at Work went equally bad at the ticket window. However despite all this, actor Anil Kapoor still insists that he is a part of the film.
