Aishwarya Rai and Sunil Shetty once started working on a film called Hum Panchi Ek Dol Ke but it was put on hold. Ashutosh Rana has been signed to play the villain in the film.
Aishwarya Rai and Sunil Shetty once starred in Shashi Lal Nair’s Hum Panchi Ek Dol Ke. However, the director is said to have dropped out of the film halfway through and put it to bed. According to reports, the film’s producer tried to lure other directors to finish the film, but to no avail. The film starred Aishwarya as the garage owner and Ashutosh Rana as half animal half human. read more: Aishwarya Rai Bonnie’s Wealth: I Look Looks Great: ‘You Look Like an Idol’
Aishwarya has even talked about working with Sunil and Sashilal in an interview to a daily. She said, “Sunil is like a child – he is very naughty. On screen we are always fighting and we are constantly ripping each other. Sasi is such a child – very relaxed. He is not a serious person. Working with both of these turns into a tour.
Asked if he plays a modern, Western woman in the film, he said, “Actually it’s not very Westernized. I’m a regular garage owner. No bomb shell.”
According to Sify.com, Ashutosh expressed his excitement at working on the film, saying, “It’s like living your childhood imagination.” According to a report in Rediff, director Shashi Lal Nair skipped the film when 75% of the film was completed, thus halting the film. Producer Rahul Gupta tried two other directors to finish it but was unsuccessful, the report said. At one point director Latdeep Binny also joined the film.
There was an unfortunate accident while filming abroad. Jodhaa Akbar fame director Ravi Diwan once said in an interview to Deccan Chronicle, “I remember when we were abroad during the filming of Sunil Shetty and Aishwarya in 2003, the Hollywood guy Scott told someone not to fit the camera on the boat. Roy-movie Hum Panchi Ek Dol K. But he did not listen to me, the camera fell down and never got back! That’s where defense directors need to come and insist on how to do it. No one listened to me because I was Indian.
Aishwarya will now be seen in Mani Ratnam’s much-anticipated Ponni Selvan: I. His first appearance was released earlier this month. Directed by Mani Ratnam, she plays Nandini and Mandakini Devi.
