Long ago, it was announced that the cold war between two old friends and colleagues Sunny Deol and Rajkumar Santoshi had ended and that they would come together in the film Fateh Singh. However, more than two years have passed and the film has not moved beyond the announcement stages, indicating that the beef has not been quashed.
Upon inquiry, we were told that the initial budget which was discussed with the to-be producer Sajid Qureshi was a big
departure from the value finally presented before the film went on the floors.
“Sunny and Raj ji, who had given us films like Ghayal, Damini and Ghaatak earlier, were seriously a deadly combination. Sunny and his director had fallen out earlier, but the news of them coming back together was welcome news. However, that was not to be, as the film’s budget became the main villain even before the movie went on the floors,” says our source.
Sunny, who had even made Ghayal Returns without Santoshi, saw the film flop badly. Santoshi too had started a film on the battle of Saragarhi with Randeep Hooda and later shelved it. And now we hear that the two will also not be working together, at least in the near future.
