Trimming budgets is the need of the hour. That’s what producer Sohail Maklai realised who’s next film KnockOut was proving a wee bit expensive. Director Mani Shankar wanted to re-shoot and do some patchwork on the film in Mumbai but this would have pushed the budget way beyond limits.
Maklai went to his leading man Sanjay Dutt and asked for help. And guess what? Being a doston ka dost, Jr Dutt called up a friend in Pune and shifted the entire shoot there. We’re told this has saved Maklai loads of dough and the latter is still wondering how to thank his hero.
Cheers to Jr Dutt and we hope more and more actors follow suit.
