Blame it on Sudhir Mishra's strict shooting schedule, as the actor will miss out on an extended vacation in Dubai with King Khan and the Roshans
Thanks to Sudhir Mishra, Arjun Rampal's annual holiday plans with his wife and children, along with pals Hrithik Roshan and SRK was about to go kaput.
Mishra is currently working on his next, a film about sexual dynamics in a corporate house, with Rampal. Arjun wanted the last week of the year off. But the filmmaker refused to let him go.
Says a source, "Sudhir is shooting the climax of the film. It's the last four days of the shoot, from Monday to Thursday. Arjun who has been working round-the-clock over his television show wanted the last week off to spend time with his family. However, Sudhir was adamant on completing the film."
Now Arjun has decided to wrap up Mishra's film and then join his friends in Dubai. Says the actor, "Ideally I'd have liked to take a holiday with my wife and kids a little earlier. But we're shooting the last four days of Sudhir's film.
There's no choice. These last two months have been killing for me. We completed one schedule of Heroine, then my TV show Luv To Hate You and Sudhir Mishra's film."
Apparently, attempts to get the filmmaker to hold back the shooting of the climax till after New Year, fell on deaf ears. Interestingly, this New Year, three star couples Hrithik-Sussanne, Shah Rukh-Gauri and Arjun-Mehr will be holidaying in Dubai.
The actor says, "We are going to be there as a big group. But at the moment I can only think of finishing my work with Mishra."
