Neeraj Gupta, who began work on his film Bhaiyaji Superhit three years ago, is now a relieved man. The film that stars Sunny Deol and Preity Zinta, went on floors in 2013 but later, it was put on hold indefinitely due to financial issues. After only a few portions were shot, the filming came to an abrupt halt.
Meanwhile, Sunny moved on to his other film commitments while Preity distanced herself from films altogether. But now, things are back on track.
A very happy Neeraj says, “We recently resumed shooting and we have a schedule of 20-25 days. We shot with Preity last week. Now, she has taken a break for a few days as her husband and in-laws are in the country. They have all taken off to someplace. But she’s soon going to join us again.”
With such a large gap between the film’s first schedule and this one, are they facing issues of continuity, especially in connection with Sunny’s look?
The director says, “Recently, Sunny saw some footage from the filmed portions and he said that he feels he looks younger now. Of course, he’s only getting younger by the day. We are going to shoot some action scenes with him soon.”
The team expects to wrap Bhaiyaji Superhit in two months and keep the film ready for release this year itself....
