MUMBAI - Dates problems have delayed Raj Kumar Santoshi’s ‘Power’ for which the director was in touch with Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn. Now a meeting bringing together the principal stars of the film is on the anvil to get the troubled project moving again.
It is reliably learnt that producer Feroz Nadiadwala and Santoshi will be getting together the A-listers under the same roof to avoid all confusion over dates.
“We’ll only proceed when all the stars are with us. We’re having a meeting with the stars shortly,” said Santoshi.
There were reports that Ajay is in. Ajay is outIn.OutIn! Finally, Ajay, whom Santoshi met recently, has agreed to return to “Power”, but at a price.
Santoshi met Devgn. The star has agreed to return to the project because of his very close association with Santoshi over ‘The Legend Of Bhagat Singh’, ‘Halla Bol’ and ‘Lajja’, said a source.
However, the hitch is how to get the other actors to co-ordinate their dates with Devgn?
Said a source very close to the project: Mr Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Anil Kapoor are very busy stars. Their dates were taken for ‘Power’ and wasted because of the problems with Devgns remuneration and dates. Now Devgns dates have to be co-ordinated with the others.
The Big B, who is shooting another film “Aarakshan” for the same producer as “Power”, is expected to adjust his dates between the two projects. But Sanjay and Anil are apparently committed to other projects.
