Sunny Deol's film runs into troubled waters again as actor-writer Piyush Mishra quits the project

It looks like Sunny Deol is having a really unlucky streak in the industry. His 2008 film The Man has still not seen the light of the day. I love NY and Mohalla Assi both are completed but are stuck for release. The first schedule of Bhaiyyaji Superhit has been shot after much delay.

Even his TV show failed to take off. Now the latest news is that Sunny’s magnum opus Ghayal 2 has hit yet another roadblock. The writer (screenplay and dialogue) of the film Piyush Mishra has quit the project.

Sources say that Piyush, who has written for films like Ghajini, Agneepath and Yahaan, walked out of the project due to his differences with director Rahul Rawail. The writer had been given the job of penning Ghayal 2, that was being touted as Sunny’ return to the big screen as an action hero.

Piyush confirms our news and says, “Yes, I have quit the film.” Our sources tell us that the differences between Rawail and Piyush arose when the writer wanted to Sunny to take an active part in contributing to the script and Rawail objected to that.

Our source tells us, “Rawail kept saying Sunny would okay everything that he wanted and kept on asking Piyush to make changes. Finally, Piyush got irked and decided to opt out.” So, while the teaser of the film was released with Salman Khan’s Ready in June 2011, it looks like the final cut is still some time away.
