SCOOP: Shoot of Akshay Kumar’s Marathi film Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat halted due to budget problems

Bollywood Hungama has learned that the status of Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat is in limbo. A source told us, “The shoot has been halted. This is because producer Vaseem Qureshi is facing budget problems.”

The source continued, “Around 50% of the shoot is completed. Akshay Kumar has a guest appearance and has shot for 3 days. He has also been paid a chunk of his fees.” It was, however, not clear if Akshay has completed his shoot or if he will be required to report back on the sets of Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat, once the filming resumes.

The source also said, “There’s no update on when the issues will get sorted and when the remainder of the shoot will get completed. And obviously, there’s no clarity on its release date either.” Bollywood Hungama tried contacting the spokesperson of Vaseem Qureshi but he was unavailable for comment.

Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat is directed by Mahesh Manjrekar and also stars his son Satya along with Pravin Tarde, Jay Dudhane, Hardik Joshi, Vishal Nikam, Utkarsh Shinde and Virat Madke. It is also going to be dubbed in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

An industry insider, however, commented, “These things happen. There’s no reason to press the panic button. It’s a big film, involving names like Akshay Kumar and Mahesh Manjrekar. I am sure the issues will get sorted and the shoot will resume soon. Vedat Marathe Veer Daudle Saat has the potential to be a huge hit due to the subject, scale and of course Akshay’s starry presence.”
