John Abraham and director Sanjay Gupta are reportedly at loggerheads over an opening sequence of Ekta Kapoor's Shootout At Wadala. The sequence is an abusive reference made to the police force and has apparently been a contention of dispute between the actor and director right from the time the idea was proposed.
While John is of the opinion that the abusive prologue might upset few of his friends in the police department, Sanjay Gupta thinks that the dialogue is an extremely important part in the film and cannot be deleted.
Speaking to a leading daily, director Sanjay Gupta admitted that John is unhappy with the opening sequence and so is senior actor Anil Kapoor. However, the director is adamant on keeping the scene as it is.
If sources are to be believed, John Abraham and Sanjay Gupta previously had a minor disagreement with regards to a song in the film.
Mika who had sung and composed the song 'Ae Ganpat' for the original Shootout at Lokhandwala was asked to write a new tune for the sequel Shootout At Wadala, which was supposed to be identical to the original song. However, John requested for a new song and Gupta obliged. That's how the song 'Dar dar ke nahin jeene ka... Bhai bole to peene ka...' came about.
Let's hope the differences between the two, talented actor and director fades away and we are able to watch Shootout At Wadala in all it's glory!
