A source close to the project clarified to Bollyspice, “The production was to shoot around the Wankhede Stadium om that particular day. However, at the last moment the shooting permissions were revoked owning to the IPL traffic congestion expected by the authorities.”
The director further clarified when he tweeted about the false news, “What’s with all the big hulla-gulla about Jazbaa shoot getting cancelled because of IPL. Wankhede stadium had nothing to do with it…Police denied permission to shoot Jazbaa on Marine Drive cause of IPL traffic. That’s it! Stop getting extra enthu with conspiracy theories. We were to shoot on the roads and not in Wankhede Stadium. So no question of seeking permission from Wankhede authorities.”
Directed by Sanjay Gupta, the highly anticipated drama stars Aishwarya, Irrfan Khan, Anupam Kher, Shabana Azmi Abhimanyu Singh, Atul Kulkarni and Chandan Roy Sanyal. Jazbaa will hit the theatres on Friday, October 9, 2015.
