Last week, B-Town was abuzz with talk that Salman Khan and Partner director David Dhawan had a huge fight. Says a source, "It had something to do with the editing of Partner. Salman wanted some scenes edited in a particular way while David, who edits all his films, said he knew his job.
Khan also wanted some scene nixed but David refused, and this led to a heated exchange of words. However, David and Salman are very fond of each other. A few days later, David called Salman and they sorted out the issue."
'He's a great guy'
David laughs off the rumours. He says, "I'm having coffee with Salman right now at Barista. Do you think I would be sitting around with him if we had a fight? Also, would I be doing the sequel to Partner if that were true?"
The latest on Partner is that it has run into legal problems, with Sony threatening to sue the Indian producers for $30 million for rehashing Hitch. Says David, "It's rubbish. How many producers can they sue? Five hundred films are made here that are inspired by Hollywood films."
