Director Chandraprakash Dwivedi has come out and blasted rumours that he has had a fallout with his Prithviraj producer Aditya Chopra! A report this morning claimed that they two parted ways after Ram Setu announcement because Adi was not kept in the loop on the same. The malicious report claimed that Adi had fired Dwivedi and is now editing the film himself, which is also a figment of their imagination according to the film-maker.
Chandraprakash says, “This rumour published by Bollywood Hungama is absolutely baseless and is malicious in its intent. Adi and I have an extremely good relationship bound by mutual respect for each other’s craft. Adi, as a producer, has given me complete creative freedom to try and deliver my vision for Prithviraj on screen. I’m thankful for his constant support.”
He adds, “Such reports are agenda-driven, intended at creating discord within relationships and smells of a vendetta. I would strongly urge the media to not pay any attention to such claims. Adi and I are creating a project that we feel will stand out for its intent and such motivated articles won’t derail us from delivering our vision to audiences. Adi and I are also discussing and will collaborate on future projects. They will be revealed in due course of time.”
For the unversed, the fallout between Aditya and Dwivedi happened when he unceremoniously decided to make a big announcement of Ram Setu without informing Adi. While the shoot of the Akshay Kumar starrer is already complete, what irked Adi was Dwivedi's Ram Setu announcement and was so upset with it, he fired Chandraprakash.
