With just 53 days to release, Ayan Mukerji is racing against time to wrap up his ambitious film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. According to reports, the young filmmaker is staring at a long task list, and Dharma is pulling out all the stops to help Ayan get the film back on track.
Asource close to the production house told Mirror: “A large chunk of dubbing, that includes quite a few critical scenes, is yet to be done. Asong featuring Ranbir and Madhuri Dixit is yet to be shot. Some more scenes need to be shot in Mumbai and most importantly, the climax, that involves all four actors (Ranbir, Deepika, Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki) remains to be shot as well.”
Given the enormity of the task, Ayan, it is said is about to press the panic button.
“He is feeling the heat… and has confided in Ranbir about his anxiety, who is standing by his buddy helping him sort things out,” said the source, adding, “The song with Madhuri is likely to be shot by the end of the month. Pritam too has put other projects on hold to complete the soundtrack.”
With the schedule stretching longer than expected, Ayan also had a problem with Deepika’s dates. The actress, who has been buzzing between her three films - Chennai Express, Yeh Jawaani and Ram Leela, has had a tough time accommodating fresh requests from her directors.
“But Ayan managed to wrangle two days with Deepika from Rohit Shetty. And if everything goes according to plan, he will meet the deadline,” added the source.MumbaiMirror
