Abhishek's debut hits roadblock
The launch of Ambareesh's son has hit another snag, but the producer assures us the hunt is still on for the right script and director
Looks like there will be a further delay in the launch of Ambareesh’s son, Abhishek. CE spoke to producer Sandesh Nagaraj, who confirmed this news. “The story becomes is a priority when making any film, and there is more responsibility when launching a newcomer like Abhishek,” says the producer.
Initially, the debut film for the young actor was supposed to helmed by Pawan Wadeyar, but then, director Chethan Kumar came into the picture. The project was supposed to go on floors from this month. But according to the latest development, we were told that even Chethan might not helm the actor’s film, for reasons unknown.
Sandesh, without naming anyone, tells us, “Initially, we had a story and a director, who made an early exit. The director who stepped in after did not want to helm a film by a different writer, and that has put everything on hold. We are now in the process of getting a good story and a director who can take full responsibility. Only after that will we make a formal announcement.”
There is also a rumour floating that Sandesh might drop the project, but he rubbishes this. “Who is spreading this rumour? It is all false. Our banner will be producing Abhishek’s film, but will talk about it only when we are ready with the project.”
