At the moment Aishwarya Bachchan is trying to cope up with the most impossible schedule ever faced by an actress. She was in the US to bring in her third marriage anniversary. Then Cannes for the film festival. In between she must also start all the promotional work for Mani Ratnam's Raavan.
And now with Akshay Kumar in London for 90 days to shoot for Nikhil Advani's Patiala House, where does that leave Vipul Shah with his one remaining song to be shot for Action Replayy?
Not in a very happy position! Neither Aishwarya nor Akshay Kumar has any dates to spare for the song. And Vipul won't release the film without the song, which he considers extremely vital to the plot.
So here's the ever-accommodating Aishwarya's plan: She generously suggested that Vipul flies down with his unit to London. She herself would fly from Cannes to London and shoot the song with Akshay in night shifts. That is when Akshay wouldn't be shooting for Patiala House.
Says Vipul, "It is very generous and considerate of Aishwarya to suggest that she'd join me from Cannes, that I come to London and shoot the song with her and Akshay. She is really working very hard. Both Akshay and she have a genuine date problem."
Vipul is in two minds whether he should take up his indefatigable leading lady's kind offer. "I need four days to shoot my song. I don't know if I can impose on director Nikhil Advani's time and money like this. Let's see. In any case, I've now postponed the release of Action Replayy from July to September."
Since the other big, Aishwarya Bachchan starrer Raavan, releases in June, Vipul thought it wise to postpone his film to a later date.
