The director's eagerly-awaited project Paa has been postponed by a month. However, the imminent clash with the other Bachchan starrer Teen Patti has been averted, thanks to the actor's timely intervention.
Apparently, Mr. Bachchan personally requested the producers of Teen Patti to avoid any clash with Paa.
So it's Paa going solo on December 4. Says Paa director Balki, "As far as I'm concerned it is only Paa releasing on December 4. We were supposed to release on November 13. But that would have been two weeks after another Amitabh Bachchan starrer Aladin. And we couldn't ask Aladin to shift. They've gone through too many delays already," rationalized Balki before leaving for patchwork shooting in Lucknow on Tuesday.
"Though Paa is set in Lucknow, this is the first time that I'm visiting the city in my entire life," said Balki.
