It’s very simple, really. Salman wants Ready to rock. And for that, Salman Khan has taken charge of the destiny of Ready. Anees has been sportingly justifying all of Salman’s impositions as friendly collaboration. But a difference of opinion came up between the two recently.
Says a source, “It was for a chase sequence. Salman wanted it edited in a particular way. But Anees thought it was fine the way it was.”
To his credit, Anees doesn’t deny the incident. “It was a pre-climactic chase sequence. Salman’s character pursues the goons on an auto-rickshaw. I wanted it shorter, not more than 3 minutes of playing-time. Salman wanted it to go on a little longer because he thought the kids would enjoy it. So we extended it to 4 minutes. That’s it.”
Reasons Anees, “There has been no major argument as such. I’ve shown the edited portions to Salman as I’ve done to all my heroes in other films. What’s wrong with that? Yes, I did change the chase sequence on his suggestion because it made sense to do so.”
