Actor-director Mahesh Manjrekar who is known to have given Bollywood a film like Vaastav and Marathi cinema films like Natsamrat and Kaksparsh, is all set to direct another film, titled Thakur Devdas.
Produced by Vijay Galani, the film will see Vidyut Jammwal essaying the role of a suave businessman. Reports also confirm that actors Naseeruddin Shah and Amol Palekar too have been signed for the film. According to sources, actress Shruti Hassan who is pitted opposite Vidyut in the film has charged double the amount. “Shruti would only agree to face the camera and begin her routine shoot after she was paid her daily remuneration. Her manager refused to budge until the advance payment was made to him on a daily basis,” says a source.
