The recently-appointed HRD minister is shuttling between Delhi and Mumbai to keep to her Cabinet commitments and seems to have no time for the film
The makers of Asin and Abhishek Bachchan starrer All is Well might just be regretting the decision to cast the BJP minister Smriti Irani in the film. They have had to reschedule the film’s shooting in the past to accommodate the actor turned politician’s HRD ministry responsibilities.
With Irani having to make decisions for the HRD ministry, she cannot seem to find time for the shoot. All is Well was being shot in Shimla when we heard that the Kyuki actor had to drive down to Delhi for Election results. Now that the film unit is back in Mumbai, Smriti is finding it hard to juggle between her acting and political commitments. Though we thought that this would serve as a bone of contention between Smriti and the filmmakers, Vinod Bhanushali, President of Marketing and promotions of T-Series has another story to tell, “Smritiji had to go to Delhi to be part of the newly-formed government and as responsible Indian citizens, we understand that taking on the HRD ministry’s responsibility is currently her priority. Director Umesh Shukla has already shot with her in Shimla and she will join the crew at a later stage to finish her remaining scenes. The film’s Mumbai schedule begins on June 12 and Smriti is supposed to be part of this schedule.”
Will All is Well’s shoot schedule suffer some more due to Smriti’s political career or will the actor turned politician manage to do justice to all her commitments? Only time will tell.
