B-town is flooded with reports of Sujoy Ghosh’s film ‘The Devotion of Suspect X’ being indefinitely delayed over differences between the director and the film’s producer Ekta Kapoor. If the reports are to be believed, then Sujoy and Ekta have had a difference of opinion over the budget of the movie.
While Ekta granted the director a budget of 20 crores, Sujoy has been demanding double the granted budget, thus leading to a tiff between the two. If the news of director-producer tiff wasn’t enough, now we hear is that actress Kangana Ranaut too has opted out of the film owing to a delay.
Interestingly, Kangana Ranaut was signed opposite Saif Ali Khan in the Hindi adaptation of ‘The Devotion of Suspect X’. The film also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
When asked Kangana about the status of the movie she retorted, “It is way too early to say anything. Also, I have been so involved with this film (Tanu Weds Manu Returns) that I haven’t got the time to okay things. But I am going to line up things now.”
Meanwhile, Kangana is currently prepping up for Nikhil Advani’s ‘Katti Batti’. Quiz her as to what made her sign the film and she says, “I am just concentrating on good scripts. ‘Katti Batti’ is an urban, beautiful and intense love story. There is no double role, it is not female centric but just a love story. I want to do films like that.”
