Here is the case of this filmmaker and his upcoming ambitious project which got shelved recently. The story according to our highly placed sources goes something like this – this film that this producer was very excited to take on the floors had to be stopped just weeks away from it mounting the sets. The filmmaker had announced this film with a female lead but apparently couldn’t get a formal studio on board which was a prerequisite for the female lead to the do the film in the first place. Our sources reveal that the filmmaker had a hefty cut for him when he offered the film to studios around the city and they knew the fast one that he was trying to pull, hence stayed clear of his project. Now, with the female lead returning his advances the filmmaker doesn’t have a film and it will be interesting to see if he can get another lead in time to take the film on the floors according to his original plans or he would’ve to shelve the film completely which looks more likely to happen given the recent turn of events.
