Antichrist movie created waves in the industry even before the shooting had started due to its cast. The still-to-be started project was rumoured to cast Fahad Fazil, Prithviraj and Indrajith in lead roles. But, later it was reported that the movie got shelved after the producers of the movie backed out due to huge production cost. Double Barrel, which is Lijo's latest outing with the same cast is also rumoured to be shelved and that too for the same reason!
Yes, it has been said that Lijo told that producer of Double Barrel that the production cost of the movie will amount to Rs 10 crores, which apparently forced the producer to step back from producing the movie! The producer said that he agreed to make the movie due to the presence of Prithviraj. But, when he heard the cost of production for the movie, he has been forced to step back.
The producer also said that he did not get a satellite amount as expected which has now forced him to quit from making the movie.
After this incident, a general complaint has been aroused from the producers as a whole that most of the directors do not finish off the shoot on the scheduled time. Instead, they drag it too long thus, making a loss for the producer. A recent Fahad Fazil movie was completed in 85 days when the actor had given him 35 days for it. Reports claim that not much amount will be obtained from satellite for their movies.
