Mumbai’s deluge has just claimed its first Bollywood casualty. Madhur Bhandarkar’s comedy Dil To Bachcha Hai Jee whose shooting was supposed to start this week from July 1, has been postponed.
Madhur Bhandarkar confirms these developments. “I was supposed to start shooting with Omi Vaidya and Emran Hashmi from July 1. All the scenes were outdoors in Mumbai, on the streets in public places. We didn’t want the comedy to be restricted to the sets.”
Alas! the rain gods had other plans. And now Madhur finds himself stuck with the problem of his two leading men’s dates going in vain. Says Madhur, “We’re going to start shooting from July 5. Hopefully, the rain will be under control by then. If the weather doesn’t improve we’ll move indoors and shoot in cafes, etc”.
Meanwhile, the hunt for a leading lady for Ajay Devgn is still on. Says Madhur, “We’ve some time in hand to look for the girl, before Ajay joins us.”
