Jazbaa director Sanjay Gupta is not sure why people are making such a big fuss about Aishwarya Rai being denied permission to shoot in Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium.
Sanjay Gupta gets defensive about AIshwarya Rai and slams the media. There were rumours which spread that the former world beauty was denied permission to shoot at the stadium due to the ongoing IPL matches.
However, Sanjay Gupta slams the rumour and says that the actress was not supposed to shoot at the stadium at all.
"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," Sanjay Gupta said.
He added, "We were to shoot on the roads and not in Wankhede Stadium. So no question of seeking permission from Wankhede authorities."
Jazbaa marks the comeback of actress Aishwarya Rai after five long years. The movie is slated to release on October 9, 2015.
