Ajay Devgan at loggerheads with Cash film director Anubhav Sinha
Ajay Devgan was last seen in Omkara where he received due praise for his role in the film. Omkara also received critical appreciation. Now Ajay will soon be seen in another multi-starrer film Cash. The film stars Ajay Devgan, Zayed Khan, Esha Deol, Shamita Shetty, Suniel Shetty etc. However it seems that after shooting for a major portion for Cash, Ajay has developed some problem with the director of the film Anubhav Sinha. In fact actor Ajay Devgan seems to be caught between the differences between producer Sohail Maklai who is also a good friend and director Anubhav Sinha. Sources claim that due to a fallout between producer and director, recently Anubhav shot a song sequence without Ajay and also used a body double for completing some unfinished stunts in the film without asking Ajay.
Sources claim that the producer and director of the film are at loggerheads over some issue and the matter has even been taken to court. Ajay considers producer Maklai a friend and has naturally sided with him. Hence Ajay refused to continue shooting for the remainder portions of the film till the matter was sorted out by the court. However director Anubhav seemed in no mood to wait for Ajay and so went ahead and shot the song sequence without him, using the other actors in the film. Anubhav also completed some of Ajay’s stunts using a body double for him. However director Anubhav states “As far as Ajay goes, I have no problems whatsoever with him, he has shot the film and was great in the film. This song has been picturised on Zayed, Ritesh, Esha and Shamita. Ajay was not required for it at all. There is a body double for the action sequences, but it is a common practice for stunt sequences.”
Anubhav refused to talk about his dispute with producer Sohail perhaps due to the case being sub-judice. However Ajay’s spokesperson claimed that Ajay is waiting for the entire matter to be sorted out legally and only then will he decide what needs to be done. Ajay is also currently busy with his first directorial venture which stars himself along with wife Kajol, the film is titled Hum, Tum and U. Ajay and Kajol have supposedly also been roped into play Ram and Sita in a mega budget project based on Ramayan.
