With his plate too full with simultaneous shoots of three films, Farhan Akhtar might just push the fourth one forward
The year 2014 will see actor Farhan Akhtar juggling his dates. Sources say that dates for at least one of the three films he’s working on this year will get reshuffled. While one is a Zoya Akhtar film starring Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh and is scheduled to start shooting in June, another is a Vidhu Vinod Chopra film, directed by Bejoy Nambiar. This film will start rolling in September, and then there’s Rahul Dholakia’s film, titled 'Raees', that is scheduled to go on the floors just after the monsoons.
Industry sources say that it is going to be extremely difficult for the actor to shoot for three films that go on the floors at the same time. A source says, “The actor has requested one of his costars to push forward the shoot for one of his films.”
Industry sources add that 'Raees' may now get pushed ahead although producer Ritesh Sidhwani maintains that the film will go on the floors in October as per schedule. It remains to be seen if Farhan can accommodate dates for all three films.
