After 4-year wait for Aamir Khan, director Deepak Dwivedi shifts to another production house
After waiting four years for Aamir Khan Productions to fund his film, debutante director Deepak Dwivedi has now moved to another production house.
Reports suggest that Aamir Khan has been delaying work on the film titled Kashmir Glasshouse for four years now. The actor was supposed to begin work on the project in 2012. However owing to other commitments the film was constantly pushed to the backburner.
Dwivedi, who has been working as an assistant director since 1999, had brought a script to Khan of a friendship between two Agra shop owners that cuts across religious and cultural barriers. It impressed Khan, who agreed to produce the film under his production banner. The film was to go on floor before his television show Satyameva Jayate in 2012.
Deccan Chronicle reports, “Aamir was keen to produce the film, but has now asked Dwivedi to wait for two years before his production house can take it further. Deepak has worked on the film for close to a year already, and even finalised Chandan Roy Sanyal to play a pivotal role in it.”
Dwivedi now plans to begin work on the film from early 2017 with the new producer.
Sounds like a good decision since Aamir will be keeping busy for a longtime now. The actor awaits the release of his wrestling film Dangal which will be followed by Yash Raj film Thugs of Hindostan.
