Prakash Jha is ready to shoot Rajneeti, but where are his actors?
Prakash Jha is ready to shoot Rajneeti but his cast is missing in action. Having an ensemble cast for his project is proving to be daunting for combination dates. A schedule slated to roll last week has been pushed to October 12.
The film's leading cast, including Ajay Devgan, Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Manoj Bajpayee are busy with their other commitments. This has led to a shuffle of dates involving them.
Says a unit source, "For continuity reasons, the film can only be shot in Bhopal. As it is a large cast, obtaining the combination dates of all of them is quite a task. Left with no choice, the shoot schedules are being reworked."
Ranbir flew into Bhopal on Saturday for the shoot as earlier he was busy with the promotions of Wake Up Sid.
It is learnt that Devgan is tied up with his production All The Best and is staying put in Mumbai till the film releases on October 16.
Moreover, the actor will not be shooting for Rajneeti for at least over a week even after his film releases. Apparently, he is slated to shoot only after Oct 25. Katrina, too, has been busy with the promotions of Ajab Prem Ke Ghazab Kahani while Manoj Bajpayee with Acid Factory.
Jha however maintains, "My film has an ensemble cast so I have been shooting with different set of actors throughout. I don't need everyone to be present every day. When there are gaps in the shoot, they are free to pursue their other commitments."
He says Devgan shot with him for five days recently and will be back when he needs him. "Ranbir and Katrina are shooting presently with me. There is no delay or postponement in the schedules of Rajneeti. Everything is on course."
