Guess Who?

All, it seems, is not well between the producer and director of this film that is scheduled to release in the last quarter of the year.
The reason is, one of the oldest woes in our industry – budgets being breached. Now that shooting is complete and the bills have been counted, realisation has dawned that the film has overshot its budget by a good 30 per cent. And now the sawal croreron ka – who will foot the bill?
The producer is insisting the director to pay for the excess cost, while the director is equally adamant that the producer should fork out the extra dough. The director claims that the film has shaped up very well and that the producer will definitely recover the extra investment. And so we have a stalemate, with both parties sulking. But, wait, it doesn’t end here!
The director recently announced a film that’s pretty hot property as it has an A-league star and the producer has been making not-so-subtle inquiries about it. The implied offer being that the project be given to him at a discount so that the extra spent on the existing film can be ‘adjusted’. The director, obviously, is pretending that he has not caught the broad hint!
Who will blink first and will the film release on time? Time (and Box Office India!) will tell!
