Prabhudheva forced to shift climax of ‘Action Jackson’

News is that director Prabhudheva had to postpone the shooting of the elaborate climax in his upcoming film ‘Action Jackson’ to July as actor Ajay Devgn, who plays the lead in it, is busy with Rohit Shetty’s ‘Singham Returns’!

A source revealed the entire news saying, “This is the way Ajay planned the releases. He wants to complete ‘Singham Returns’ first. The climax of ‘Action Jackson’, which is pending, would now be shot in the monsoon.”

And, no wonder, Prabhudheva is worried as he said, “It’s a very tough climax involving a large volume of cast, crew, finances and labour. But July would also be the time for torrential rains. So, I am keeping my fingers crossed that nothing goes wrong.”

Adding to his woes, news is that the director now wants the July climax to be shifted to Hyderabad from Filmcity, Mumbai but the producers insist on shooting here. On being asked about these developments, Prabhhudeva replied, “We had no choice but to shift the climax to July as Ajay is busy with ‘Singham Returns’. But I’m sure everything will be fine. This is the first time I’ve worked with Ajay Devgn and I can tell you for sure this is going to be one of his most special films.”

Talking about the film the filmmaker further added saying, “Not only are his action sequences in ‘Action Jackson’ unique, Ajay has also done a straight-faced humour here which would bring the roof down. No matter when we release, Ajay’s fans will be happy.” Hmm… now here’s a diehard optimist! But looking at the way the film is progressing, we think the film is now unlikely to be released before the beginning of 2015.
