Neeraj Pathak's 'Bhaiyyaji Superhit', which was announced four years ago and shelved soon after over budget issues, has been pulled out of the cold storage. Buzz suggests that shooting for the film has started recently. It stars Sunny Deol, Preity Zinta, Ameesha Patel, Arshad Warsi, Mithun Chakraborthy and Shreyas Talpade.
A source says, "The film had been canned due to financial constraints. But now, it has got a new lease of life. The team had a brief schedule in Mumbai recently and will head to Banaras next month. The script and star cast remains what it was earlier."
The film had been shelved apparently because Neeraj had asked producer Fauzia Arshi to raise the budget by Rs 6 crore after 15 days of shooting and she didn't agree to the proposal. Some other reports suggested that the director had approached Subhash Ghai to fund the project without Arshi's knowledge, which led to a dispute and eventually, pushed the film to the cans.
Neeraj confirms the development, adding: "We are back on track and will release the movie early next year. All the actors as well as the crew members are excited about wrapping up the film as early as possible."
