Sanjay Leela Bhansali"s attempt to produce Chenab Gandhi, a story on Frontier Gandhi, was very much in the making up until just a few days ago. The film was being directed by one of his assistants, Vibhu Puri, who had assisted Bhansali on Saawariya earlier. Amitabh Bachchan and Vidya Balan were playing pivotal characters.
Sources reveal that Sanjay Leela Bhansali was not very happy with the director hence has decided to scrap the project.
It was earlier reported that Harman Baweja was dropped and Rajeev Khandelwal had replaced him. The source further adds that Rajeev seems to be heart- broken and depressed about the film being scrapped.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali remained unavailable for comment.
