Rohit Dhawan’s directorial debut shelved; he is working on a rom com now

By Sonal Chawla (MUMBAI MIRROR; November 24, 2009)


Times aren’t good for director David Dhawan. Yesterday, we broke the news about how Salman Khan is not letting him direct Sanki and now, we have learnt that his son Rohit’s debut directorial venture has gone kaput.

The Akshay Kumar-John Abraham starrer, Come on Pappu has been shelved and the junior Dhawan is now working on an entirely new film, a romantic comedy, which is yet untitled. Rohit confirms, “Yes, I am not making Come on Pappu anymore.”

A source reveals, “Come on Pappu was in trouble because several production houses were backing out. Initially, the film was to be produced by Percept Picture Company, but they backed out due to lack of funds. Rohit then took his project to Studio 18, but they refused to go ahead with it, thanks to Akshay’s exorbitant fee and John’s huge fee hike post the success of his films, Dostana and New York. Come on Pappu was then taken to Eros, who too eventually backed out.”

“Come on Pappu was a big-budget film and some really advanced technology had to be used to make it. Rohit finally decided to scrap the project altogether and moved on to write a romantic comedy. He has also auditioned a few actors from the industry for his new film,” adds the source.

Rohit says, “I am writing something else now. Due to market constraints, Come on Pappu couldn’t see light of day as it was an expensive film.” So, will the star cast remain the same for the new film, we ask Rohit. “I am still working on the script. I’ll start casting only once I am done with the final script,” he replies.
