A New Love Issshtory to be delayed…

Published by at 4:21 pm under A Love Iisshstory

If ever there was a case of talent being kept in cold storage, this is it. Sarfarosh director John Matthan is cooling his heels and literally sitting at home, waiting for his producers T-Series to wake up and finish his incomplete Himesh Reshammiya starrer A Love Issshtory. The sad news on his front is that the film is further pushed back by six months at least.

T-Series, it seems, is in no mood to finish the film, which is 90 per cent complete. Matthan shot for four days about two months ago. Just a couple of days of shooting remains, but Matthan has been told by T-Series that this can be done only after monsoons. A source says, “This is a real tragedy. T-Series was supposed to complete the film in summer.”

When asked as to why he is not confronting T-Series to speed things up, he said, “The original plan was to release my film before Karz. That was when Himesh’s career was starting off as an actor. But they started Karz first and my film didn’t kick off in time. Now they are concentrating on Kajra Re. They know best,” he lamented indirectly.

We then posed the more direct question: Isn’t it a waste of a director, who created the box-office blockbuster Sarfarosh? “Well, that’s my fate. Dekhte hain kya hota hai. I wouldn’t like to blame anybody per se. Today, things have changed. The market reality is very different. I have to see things from a T-Series point of view. There are no buyers. Films are being released either by producers themselves or on a commission basis. You need money, or then you need a lot of funds from your father to stay afloat.”

When contacted, Bhushan Kumar, head honcho of T-Series, did not deny that A Love Issshtory has been delayed. “Kajre Re got pushed back. As a result, A Love Issshtory also got postponed. We will come out with the film in November. Only a few songs remain to be shot,” said he. When further probed with the alleged cash crunch, he laughed and said, “Lage hue hain.” Sounds pretty business-like.

Yet, when we contacted Matthan again to clarify Kumar’s stance, he also told us that the title is currently being re-monikered to A Love Ishtory. Enough said.
