Filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar’s third feature film ‘Wazir’, starring prolific Bollywood actors Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar, seems to have landed itself in a peculiar situation.
The film which is all ready to be released, is far away from any promotional activities. Both its lead actors looks too busy to co-ordinate and fix-up dates to promote this film.
A source close to the movie says, “Both Mr Bachchan and Akhtar are extremely busy artistes. They aren’t just shooting films but also attending numerous activities and events. To get them individually to promote a film is hard enough. But to get them on the same platform is a matter of complicated logistics which the team is trying to work out.”
Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the producer of this film wants both the actors to promote the film together. “We are looking at collaborative promotional events with Mr Bachchan and Farhan. I have a dream cast and we’d like to make optimum use of their presence in our film. Getting them together on the same platform is a bit of problem. We’re working on it,” says director Bejoy Nambiar.
The movie has been delayed a couple of times and now is scheduled to release on 4th December.
