Shilpa Shetty who had launched her production house Essential Sports and Media Pvt Ltd. a couple of years back, went on floor with their maiden production venture Diskkiyaaoon in early 2012. However the latest is that Sanjay Dutt who was initially supposed to play an extended cameo in the film has opted out of the project citing date issues.
Apparently, Dutt who is a close pal and business associate of Shilpa and husband Raj Kundra, had agreed to do the cameo but has since committed dates to Raju Hirani’s P.K. Concerned over delaying Shilpa’s project, Dutt has opted out of it.
Confirming the development, Dutt’s spokesperson says that since Sanju has already allotted bulk dates to Hirani for P.K and to T.P. Agarwal for his film, his packed schedule fails to accommodate Shilpa’s project. Not wanting her film to suffer due to the delays, Dutt has opted out.
On the other hand though, reports say that Sunny Deol will replace Dutt in the film. The film, directed by debutante Sanamjit Singh Talwar, is 70% complete with just the cameo left to be filmed. Dishkiyaaoon which features Harman Baweja, Prashant Narayanan and Aditya Panscholi is set in the Mumbai underworld, and has been shot at real locations across the city by German cinematographer, Axel Fischer.
