Sources say that Dibakar Banerjee, who is known to be laid back during pre-release publicity, had taken off on a family holiday to the Himalayas. He reportedly went on a holiday on May 20 without informing the cast and crew of the movie Shanghai about his plans. And the director was to return on June 3.
But Emraan Hashmi and Abhay Deol who have started their interview rounds for TV channels, were very upset when they came to know about Dibakar Banerjee's plans. They gave him orders to march back home. Dibaker is reportedly returning to Mumbai on Wednesday (May 30) and will take part in the promotional activities of Shanghai.
However, Shanghai is a political thriller film, which is based on the novel 'Z' by Vassilis Vassilikos. Directed by Dibakar Banerjee, the movie features Emraan Hashmi, Abhay Deol, Kalki Koechlin, Prosenjit Chatterjee and Amin Raj in the lead roles. The film is scheduled to release on 8 June 2012.
