Delhi calling, Smriti Irani
With her role in the new cabinet, actress-turned-politician Smriti Irani has no time for films
Producers of All is Well have apparently had to reschedule the shooting of their film due to the unavailability of actress-turned-politician Smriti Irani.
With Irani assuming the role of the HRD Minister, it seems that she currently has no time for her shoots. The film’s unit has been shooting in Shimla and is returning to Mumbai today. It remains to be seen as to when the actress will find time for her film commitments.
Vinod Bhanushali, president, marketing and promotions, T-Series, says, “Smritiji had to go to Delhi to be part of the newly-formed government and as responsible Indian citizens, we understand that taking on the HRD ministry’s responsibility is currently her priority. Director Umesh Shukla has already shot with her in Shimla and she will join the crew at a later stage to finish her remaining scenes. The film’s Mumbai schedule begins on June 12 and Smriti is supposed to be part of this schedule.”
Earlier, the film’s Shimla schedule was apparently readjusted for Irani who had to leave for her constituency Amethi on results day. However, at that time, the director maintained, “Her portion has already been shot, so there was no need of a reschedule.”
