The Dinesh Vijan-Imtiaz Ali Showdown
Not all is well between the producer Dinesh Vjian who recently had a spate of hits , and director Imtiaz Ali who last few film have been disasters. The two were fast friends for years, having worked together successfully in Love Aaj Kal in 2009.
Everything went wrong when Vijan and Ali decided to do a sequel. Love Aaj Kal reloaded proved to be a curse for this association.
Apparently Vijyan was acutely unhappy with the end-product and had a massive showdown with his director.
Says an informed source, “When Dinesh Vijan saw the rushes he was aghast. He pointblank asked Imtiaz what had he done. As a producer who had actively spun hits like Stree and Lukka ChuppiDinesh could instinctively sense that Love Aaj kal had gone horribly wrong. But at that late stage there was little he could do.”
It therefore comes as no surprise to Dinesh Vijan that Love Aaj Kal has opened to scathing reviews and unfavourable audiences’ responses.While the final outcome of Love Aaj Kal at the boxoffice remains uncertain, what is certain is that this producer and director will never work together again.
