Is 'Ek Thi Daayan' being reshot?
Apparently severe creative differences between Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj have led to the former demanding that scenes be reshot
Filmmakers Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj’s sensibilities are as different as chalk and cheese. Though the two teamed up to produce a project directed by debutant Kannan Iyer starring Emraan Hashmi and Huma Qureshi, their differences seem to be now out in the open.
Some scenes of the film are being reshot even though the film’s release date is just a month away. Apparently severe creative differences between Ekta and Vishal have led to the former demanding that scenes be reshot.
Says a source close to the unit, “Yes, the buzz about the film being reshot is true. Unit folk have been told that there has been a creative clash between the two producers. Ekta wants to make the horror thriller more appealing to the aam janata with Vishal having no option but to let it happen.”
Adds the source, “Kannan has been Vishal’s assistant director so naturally he, too, is greatly influenced by Vishal’s school of filmmaking. This is something that is not going down well with co-producer Ekta.” It is learnt that the cast has been told that certain scenes needed to be reshot for the improvement of the product.
