Post tiff with Bazmee, Salman steering ‘Ready’ to theatresMay 29th, 2011 - 5:11 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, May 29 (IANS) It seems Salman Khan wants “Ready” to rock to his own rhythm and has taken charge of the destiny of the film’s release. Director Anees Bazmee has been sportingly justifying all his impositions as friendly collaboration, but apparently a difference of opinion recently came up between the two.
“It was for a chase sequence. Salman wanted it edited in a particular way. But Anees thought it was fine the way it was. The two of them had a heated argument over the issue,” said a source.
Bazmee said: “It was a pre-climactic chase sequence. Salman’s character pursues the goons in an auto-rickshaw. I wanted it shorter, no more than three minutes of playing-time. Salman wanted it to go on a little longer because he thought the kids would enjoy it. So we extended it to four minutes. That’s it.”
“There has been no major argument as such. I’ve shown the edited portions to Salman as I’ve done to all my heroes in other films. What’s wrong with that? Yes, I did change the chase sequence on his suggestion because it made sense to do so,” he added.
“Ready” is coming out on June 3 and Salman will be seen with host of other actors - Asin Thottumkal, Arya Babbar, Mahesh Manjrekar and Paresh Rawa - in the film about a rich heir who wants to enjoy life before tying the knot.
