We are just wait­ing for the dates from Ajay (sir). He has liked the script that we are work­ing on, and he wants to do the film REMO D’SOUZA, AC­TOR

Soon af­ter news broke that chore­og­ra­pher-turned­di­rec­tor Remo D’Souza (far right) has roped in ac­tors Ajay Devgn (right) and Sooraj Pan­choli for his next di­rec­to­rial, a dance-ac­tion film, re­ports came that Ajay was not im­pressed with the script Remo wrote and asked him to re­work it.

“That’s a ru­mour … an ab­so­lutely base­less one,” re­torts Remo, adding, “First of all, Ajay (sir) ap­proached me for the script, and not the other way round. It’s al­most been a year now. We have been work­ing on the script and he has loved it, con­trary to the re­ports that there is fric­tion be­tween us.”

Stat­ing that Ajay is a very pro­fes­sional ac­tor and lets a di­rec­tor do his job, Remo adds, “He (Ajay) never in­ter­feres in scripts or any­thing. He is very clear in his head about what he wants from the movie he’s act­ing in or pro­duc­ing. If he likes it, he says it, and if he doesn’t, he won’t cook up the story.”

Re­port­edly, it was this ten­sion be­tween Ajay and Remo that led to an un­due de­lay in start­ing the shoot­ing, which was to go on floors last year in Septem­ber.

Rub­bish­ing th­ese re­ports, Remo says, “We are just wait­ing for the dates from Ajay (sir). He has liked the script that we are work­ing on, and he wants to do the film. He’s busy with his next, so we will have some clar­ity soon. I feel blessed to have got this chance to di­rect him. We will start the shoot soon.”
