Ajay Devgan Leaves Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’ For ‘Son Of Sardar’
The reason behind the matter is money. If sources are to be believed then Viacom 18 is offering him a great deal for ‘Son Of Sardar’ which he is co-producing too.
A source close to Devgan says, “Viacom bought Son Of Sardar for Rs 75 crore. Devgan is a 50 percent partner in the deal. The other half goes to co-producer N R Pachisia’s company.”
“Devgan had to choose between the two films. Seeing that Son Of Sardar was financially more satisfying, Devgan chose the project over Vishal’s,” adds the source.
However, Vishal Bhardwaj is not upset with the development and he has already managed to get the other super star to act in his film.
Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola is being produced by Vishal Bhardwaj and Ajay’s close friend Kumar Mangat. The film will get released in the last quarter of 2012.
