Producer Bunty Walia who made the film “Lamhaa” with Sanjay Dutt, Bipasha Basu and Kunal Kapoor, took a long time to complete the film and had a tough time selling the film. Directed by Rahul Dholakia, “Lamhaa” got into all sorts of controversies. This film is planned for a December release.
Meanwhile, Bunty Walia announced his next production titled “Just Punjabi” with Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt playing Guru-Shishya to be directed by Apoorva Lakhia.
Then Bunty reversed the roles of Amitabh and Sanjay in the script and wanted his brother Jaspreet Walia to direct the film. According to reports, Sanjay Dutt is miffed with the producer because of these changes which were not discussed with him and opted out of the film.
Bunty confirmed going ahead with “Just Punjabi” and said the casting of Amitabh Bachchan has been confirmed. Though he did not say anything about Sanjay opting out, sources say he is after Akshay Kumar or Abhishek Bachchan to play this role.
