'I will not dub for Jung'
If controversy has a middle name, there's a fairly good chance it would be Sanjay Gupta. Just when things looked brighter with the release of Khauff -- despite the numerous controversies surrounding it -- Gupta is embroiled in yet another one. This time it's the multistarrer, Jung, starring Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Panscholi, Jackie Shroff, Raveena Tandon and Shilpa Shetty. Dutt plays a negative character in the film.
Produced by Satish Tandon and directed by Sanjay Gupta, Jung has been in the making for almost two years now. The director claims it is "80 per cent complete." But Tandon wants to release the film just the way it is. "He probably wants to cash in on Sanjay Dutt's current star status," says Gupta.
Although heroines Shilpa Shetty and Raveena Tandon have finished dubbing, Sanjay Dutt is yet to begin. "And I will not do the dubbing," he declares. But producer Sanjay Tandon remains unaffected and is threatening to get a dubbing artist to do the job.
Apparently, a few important scenes and a couple of songs are still to be shot. Tandon also claims that the entire unit had to go to South Africa, due to which the budget escalated. But Gupta denies any such thing. "The unit never went to South Africa. We think monetary reasons are governing his behaviour. He is only trying to save money. That is why we are making an appeal, through the media, to let people know that what he is doing is wrong," says Gupta.
