All’s not well with Abhay Deol-Diana Penty’s Happy Bhag Jayegi

Trouble seems to be brewing on Aanand L Rai’s production, Happy Bhag Jayegi, which stars Abhay Deol and marks the comeback of Diana Penty (who made her debut in 2012 hit Cocktail).

SpotboyE has it that Aanand and the film’s director Mudassar Aziz are not on the same page. The two have been having creative differences over the editing of the film and Aanand has been having his way too often, much to Mudassar’s displeasure.

An actor (name withheld on request) reveals that when Aanand was shown a rough cut of the film a few days ago, he got furious because it didn’t match his vision of the project. “Aanand sir and Mudassar are constantly at loggerheads. Sometimes, we’re told a scene is not in the film and the next time, we’re told that scene has been retained because Aanand sir wanted it,” says the actor.

Another actor from the crew on condition of anonymity endorses his colleague’s word, adding, “Aanand sir is calling the shots on Happy Bhag Jayegi’s post-production. It’s an open secret.”

We texted Mudassar who reverted saying: I was inside my post-production studio when you texted. You must talk to Aanand Rai.

Within a minute of the message, Aanand called to claim, “Everything is fine between us and on the film.”

Despite the ‘bonding’ that the producer and director claim to have, our sources maintain that the current scenario of Happy Bhag Jayegi is definitely not a happy one.
